Saint Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic ministry which works with the poor, the homeless, and the disenfranchised people of its community. Here at St Paschal Baylon our St Vincent de Paul keeps a pantry open from 10 am to 12 pm Monday through Friday. Although we are mainly a food pantry, we also assist with bills for utilities, rent or gas. Our clients do not have to belong to the Parish but they must be from the Conejo Valley. We work with other Societies of SVDP to maximize our assistance.
We rely on our parishioners and neighbors for food through donations through Project Response, drop-offs at the back of the church and other ministries who do collections during the year.
Pope Francis tells us to live our Faith with Corporal Works of Mercy. Through the ministry of SVDP we feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the needy , and help with housing. Come join us! The rewards are great! We are in need of Volunteers to assist in our works of mercy. Time commitment is one shift at the pantry every other week and if possible bi-monthly meetings. Our pantry is currently closed due to the pandemic. We are currently providing food every Saturday morning 9 to 11 am in the church parking lot. Please call Anne Vollmer at (818) 326-7172 if you have any questions.
