SVF Care Ministry
The St. Vincent Ferrer Care Ministry is dedicated to provide temporary assistance to the poor and disadvantaged in our community. Our first priority is to provide assistance to the truly needy of our parish, with a commitment to help all those in need, regardless of nationality or creed. We will provide food, utilities, shelter and essential transportation. Special needs will be addressed and decided during our weekly meeting, based upon resources available.
We will work jointly with other Care Ministries and organizations to help solve the larger problems brought to our attention, and provide both guidance and direction to access the proper agency. We will conduct ourselves without prejudice, and treat our clients with care, respect and consideration, while extending God’s hand to those in need of assistance.
