St. Vincent de Paul Society

Purpose

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic organization founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam and his companions. Placed under the patronage of St. Vincent de Paul, the Society derives its inspiration from his thinking and work. It seeks, in a spirit of justice and charity and by person-to-person involvement of its members, to help those who are suffering.

The St. Vincent High School organization strives to follow the adult Society. They pledge to pray for the poor and participate in activities designed to help the poor.

“Service” is the slogan for St. Vincent High School this year. The High School Society has pledged to help the St. Vincent de Paul-Ladies of Charity Food Pantry this year and to assist the Parish St. Vincent de Paul Society. Each student in the Junior and Senior High School has been asked to donate a food item each week of the school year. They have also pledged to supply a student to help the pantry every Monday morning to help the Ladies of Charity serve the poor in Perry County. In addition, high school members are asked to sign up to help man the Parish St. Vincent de Paul Society Thrift Store and furniture Distribution Center on Saturday mornings.

The young men also collect aluminum cans and recycle them for funds to run the organization and donate accumulated funds to the poor. Any high school young man is eligible to join the organization.

Soup Kitchen: 

Every year for Thanksgiving members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society travel up to St. Louis to a soup kitchen to serve the needy for the holiday. The young men start their day by going to mass at the New Cathedral. They then head over to a soup kitchen in downtown St. Louis. This past year, the young men served with the Daughters of Charity. They had a great experience by not only serving food but preparing food, doing yard work for the sisters around the house, setting up a Nativity set in the front lawn, and organizing all of the food that was in stock. This is a great service for the Daughters of Charity and a great experience for the young men. Many of our students look forward to this trip every year right before Thanksgiving.

Band, Choir, and Music Concert Changes

After great reflection and discussion, it has been determined to move all of the following Christmas Concerts: HS Band/Choir, MS Band, 5th and 6th Grade Band and the K-4th Grade Concert to a virtual performance.

The numbers, according to our health department, are so high right now that the risk of someone being contagious for COVID-19 at the event would be very likely. This decision was also based on the alert message for Perry County that was posted in previous weeks from the Perry County MO Government. We have so many families who would love to attend, it would be impossible to properly maintain a safe distance of six feet for social distancing according to the CDC guidelines.

The 2020 St. Vincent Virtual Christmas Concerts will be posted on Jupiter and SV Tribe to share with our families once the production is completed. Students will be performing and being recorded during school hours before December 18th. We will send a message to students and parents when students are to dress up when their performance is to be recorded.

Our main focus is to strive to keep our students in person throughout all of St. Vincent’s schools and to give our families the gift of good health and safety during this year of uncertainty. Please understand that we tried our best to provide our traditional in-person Christmas Concert but felt it was in the best interest to help slow the spread of Covid-19 so all our students and families can enjoy the beauty of the Christmas season.
