St. Vincent de Paul

The St. Catherine of Alexandria conference is an active affiliate of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), an international lay Catholic organization focused on offering person-to-person service to those in need. Our SVdP Ministry provides services to needy and suffering families within our local community, who are experiencing temporary difficulty due to illness, unemployment, personal tragedy or other unexpected challenges.  Examples of services offered by SVdP include:
Rent / mortgage assistance
Food / meals programs
Transportation 
Utilities
Urgent home repair / maintenance
Shopping / errands
Assistance with funeral expenses
We also provide advocacy and assistance in obtaining federal, state and local services to address longer-term needs.  If you or someone you know would benefit from these services, or if you’re interested in supporting this Ministry with your time, talent or treasure, please contact us at (978) 320-4214 or send email to st.catherine.westford.svdp@gmail.com
All are welcome.  You do not need to be a parishioner of St. Catherine church or Catholic to receive these services. Please know that all communication with our committee is treated confidentially.

God’s blessings to you and your family!

15th Annual St. Catherine – St. Vincent de Paul Golf Tournament

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for everyone's safety and comfort, we have cancelled our 15th annual St. Catherine - St. Vincent de Paul Golf Tournament, which had previously been delayed until the fall of 2020. We feel that cancelling this important fundraiser is the most respectful decision in light of the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that this pandemic has had far reaching effects for so many and we want to assure you of our prayers for you and your loved ones.  

We will look forward to celebrating with you next year on Monday, June 7, 2021 at Sky Meadow Country Club in Nashua, NH.   
 
Thank you for your prayers and continued support of St. Vincent de Paul.   
 
Be well and God Bless you,    
 St. Catherine - St. Vincent de Paul Society Golf Committee
