Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society are dedicated to helping the poor, taking their inspiration from our patron saint of charitable work, St. Vincent de Paul.

Music Ministry

At St. Vincent de Paul, we are fortunate to have a vibrant music program, which is growing all the time! Currently, we have five groups that provide music for our regularly-scheduled masses, as well as for weddings, funerals, Holy Week, Christmastide, special services and holidays. We come together each year for a Celebration of Lent program at 4:00 p.m. on the Sunday two weeks before Easter. All of our musical groups are conducted by experienced musicians. We welcome new members, both active and supporting.
