Works of Mercy

St. Vincent de Paul gave us a profound example in his life of the need to minister to the poor. Imitating his example, members of this ministry help to serve the basic needs of people living in our area.  When we feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and clothe the naked, Jesus said we minister directly to Him in the guise of the poor and suffering.  Volunteers may work in the food pantry on Thursday afternoons.

To volunteer in the food pantry, contact Dee Nicholson at (361) 980-3607.


Prayer to St. Vincent De Paul
(July 19th)

O Glorious Saint Vincent de Paul,
the mention of your name
suggests a litany of your virtues:
humility, zeal, mercy, self-sacrifice.
It also recalls your many foundations:
works of mercy, congregations, societies.

The Church gratefully remembers
your promotion to the priesthood.
Inspire all charitable workers,
especially those who minister
to both the spiritually and the materially poor.

O Lord, give us this grace
that You bestowed upon
your servant St. Vincent de Paul,
to relinquish the temptation
of material things
in our holy effort
to minister to the poor.  Amen.
