Saint Vincent de Paul Society

The St. Vincent de Paul Society provides food, clothing, and other assistance to the poor and needy. Located at the north end of the grounds, the hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00am-11:00am. Their direct number is (480) 985-4259. Call to make an appointment.

We are now collecting holiday food like gravy, yams, instant potatoes, cranberry sauce, cream of mushroom soup and stuffing.  These items will be packed and given out when we hand out turkeys for Thanksgiving.  We expect to hand out at least 150 turkeys this year to residents within our parish.

We are always in need of cereal, jam, jelly, canned chili, Vienna sausages, canned Ravioli, and peanut butter. Additionally, long crew socks are always needed. These items are given out to our homeless year round. Thank you in advance for your donations.
