Our aim is to help those in need within the parish and our community with short term or emergency aid. The Society’s motto is to “give a hand up not a hand out”. Often this means in addition to help offered by our St Vincent De Paul we may refer some clients on to other welfare agencies. The visits to our clients are always done in pairs by our members as this in their own home.
St Vincent De Paul is different from other welfare organisations because we practice our Catholic Faith which is an essential part in the work we do. The money we need is generated by bequests, donations and revenue generated from our shops. Seaford Conference is reliant on funds being passed on from higher bodies within the Society to finance the work we do.
We meet on the second Wednesday of every month at 7.30pm at the Parish Centre. The meeting finishes at 8.30pm.
Whilst we are always looking for new members, any parishioner who is interested to know more about what we do is most welcome to attend a meeting, or contact Peter.
