St. Vincent de Paul Society
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering to help to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
The Corpus Christi St. Vincent de Paul Society is comprised of parish men and women joined together to help neighbors in need. Members have dedicated themselves to visit homes of families in need in South River to assist them materially and spiritually. This Ministry gives you the opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of less fortunate individuals right here in our community.
If you want to experience the satisfaction and rewards of helping those in need, please join this ministry in serving our community.

The members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society would like to thank everyone who has supported our food pantry with generous donations of canned and shelf-stable foods. After much discussion, we have decided to transition from delivering bags of groceries to our clients to distributing supermarket gift cards. This will allow individuals to purchase fresh bread, diary, produce and meat as well as address food allergies and dietary constraints.
If you would like to make a gift card or monetary donation in any amount, please place it in the collection basket, drop off, or mail to the parish office –Attention St. Vincent de Paul Society.
We thank you for your continued support.
