Since the early days, St Titus has sponsored a Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Through this Conference we perform Corporal Works of Mercy by feeding and clothing those in need. Volunteers make home visits in our area and assess needs for furniture, clothing, household goods, food, rent, or utility payments. Several times a year we distribute food baskets to 25 to 30 needy families in our area. If the client wishes, we may pray together or leave inspirational material.
The Vincentian Vocation is more than an opportunity to volunteer, for it involves the growth of each member’s spiritual life. During the year the Society organizes days of recollection as well as the Bishop’s Mass and communion breakfast, which is held every September coinciding with the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul. Every meeting includes prayer and reflection.
||Friendship among members is important in the group effort to be a channel of charity and evangelization to those we serve. In the words of St. Vincent de Paul,
“Only through the charity of Our Lord can we transform the world. The wonderful thing is that in letting His love pass through us, we are ourselves converted.”
