St. Vincent de Paul Society

Welcome to the Seven Holy Founders St. Vincent dePaul Society

Thank you for visiting us.

Some members of the SHF
St. Vincent dePaul Society - known as Vincentians - gather to consider how to support themost needy in our community.







A Heartfelt Thank You
There are no words that seem adequate enough to express our sincerest thank-you to all of our
wonderful parishioners, who SO GENEROUSLY gave to the St. Vincent de Paul Society this year to help with Thanksgiving and Christmas presents for the needy. Literally hundreds of presents were bought, wrapped, and delivered to church and the Rectory Office...helping 35 families. These pictures are just a small part of what was donated. Because of YOU and your willingness to share with those who are less fortunate, we were truly able to make Christmas a little brighter for so many. Families were able to celebrate with their children….
YOU helped us assist Santa Claus in bringing toys and smiles to so many little ones. And the amount
of food that was donated was amazing.
Is it better to give, that to receive? Obviously it is, because
Seven Holy Founders Parishioners responded with a great, big
May God bless you abundantly for taking such good care of the least of our brothers and sisters.

  • Help over 35 families in our parish and other parishes at Christmas time with our Giving Tree donations.
  • Work with fourteen other church communities in the 63123 area to support the Affton Community Food Pantry, which annually helps 240 to 350 families in our area put food on their tables.
  • Deliver over 3,300 cans of food and other food items to the Affton Food Pantry due to contributions made by our parishioners to the "Fill the Van" food drive held on our parking lot.  Our parish not only filled the van, but needed some members' vans to help transport all the donations.
