The St. Finbarr Conference became a part of the Naples District Council in 2010. Since then, our Conference has served God by helping those in need in our parish area.
We primarily serve those in need primarily through home visits. During these home visits we are better able to help our neighbors by bringing the love of God to them, and being better able to assess their situation. Through home visits we can offer help with those facing evictions or termination of utility services. We also can provide food as well asvouchers to the Naples Thrift Store for needed clothing and household items.
Our conference also provides delivery drivers for the SVdP Meals on Wheels program which provides a daily hot meal for those in need.
We receive our funding from private donations and financial assistance from the parish. We are blessed to have been able to meet all the requests for help since our inception.
IS GOD CALLING YOU?
Many of us in the Society of St. Vincent dePaul believe that we are so much more than volunteers. We are living a lifestyle (many of us refer to it as “our journey of faith” which is devoted to growing the Kingdom of God here on Earth. Through prayer we seek guidance from Jesus Christ as to how we can best serve those in need.
Our journey is so much more than collecting and distributing food and clothes. With every home visit we are challenged (with God’s guidance) to make good decisions and offer solutions that will hopefully end their poverty.
We sincerely invite you to prayerfully consider joining us. Your relationship with your parish family, and more importantly, God will grow in leaps and bounds.
