For I was hungry... you gave me food.
I was thirsty... you gave me drink.
I was a stranger... you welcomed me.
Naked and you clothed me.
Matthew 25:35

Saint Vincent de Paul Sacred Heart Hattiesburg Conference is supported by the generous donations and 5th Sunday collections of Saint Thomas Church, Sacred Heart Parish and Saint Fabian's Parish. These donations go directly to the poor and needy families in the Hattiesburg area. Saint Vincent de Paul ministry is comprised of all volunteers. We meet with the poor one-on-one to access their needs, offer encouragement and direction and try to make a difference in their lives. Through your support we were able to help many people.

We meet once a month for about 45 minutes. We pray for God's direction in our lives and within our conference. We go over cases and discuss future plans. SVdeP invites anyone who wants to consider a very fulfilling ministry to join us. You will certainly receive more out of it than you give. Contact your church for more information.

We served 280 families (650 people) with direct visits with food, utilities, rental assistance and direction. Our new clothing store on Broadway Drive served 7902 people with clothing and household items also donated by parishioners.

SVdP is planning an open house in the near future (almost completed) to show the parishes the newly renovated building on Broadway Drive. It is larger and will house the clothing store, with more room for furniture, an on-site food pantry, a washer /dryer room, and shower facilities for the homeless.

Our volunteers are few and we ask that you pray fully consider becoming a part of our ministry.
Thank you for your support and may God Bless you and your families in 2012.
