This Month’s Featured Ministry

St Vincent DePaul

This month’s featured ministry is St Vincent DePaul, who sponsors the annual Thanksgiving Day meal. Countless hours go into planning and executing this event, and our tireless volunteers always come through.


Members of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (or “Vincentians” ) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need.

St James Ministries – Making a Difference

We, the people of St. James the Less, are a community of faith striving to show love and compassion to all. We are gathered by the power of the Holy Spirit to worship God in word and sacrament by living corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Therefore, we pledge ourselves to be responsible stewards of our time, talent and treasure.
