St. Vincent de Paul

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY: This ministry assists families and individuals
experiencing difficulties. At Most Sacred Heart in Eureka, we minister to people of all faiths
who live within our parish boundaries. Our goal is not only to assist them with their financial
needs but we also offer spiritual support and prayers. St. Vincent de Paul’s funds are obtained
from the generosity of parishioners or fundraisers. We have a Thanksgiving Day Mass Collection
and Poinsettia Plant Sale.
All year long SVDP collects canned goods and non-perishable food for the Eureka Food Pantry.
In October we collect toiletries and in November we have a canned food drive. Each December
we place SPIRIT OF GIVING Christmas trees filled with paper ornaments at the doors of the
church. Each ornament has a special request from area children and seniors, or residents of the
two area Nursing Homes. We also have ornaments for special request from St. Cronan Parish in
the city. Parishioners take the ornaments and buy a gift for a needy person. The gifts are
distributed in mid-December.
The St. Vincent de Paul group meets on the 3rd Monday at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria. We invite
any parishioner to join in this most worthwhile ministry. For further information see the parish
website or attend any meeting. Contact Mike and Jean Bollinger at or volunteer on My Parish Info by clicking on
