Neighbors helping neighbors in need through local Parish Conferences
"I was hungry and you gave me food; thirsty and you gave me drink; a stranger and you welcomed me; naked and you clothed me; sick and you cared for me; in prison and you visited me." Matt 25:35
In the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul
------ To support and enhance our service to those in need by undertaking activities which are guided by Catholic social teaching.
------ To better serve the needy by supporting the development and growth of Parish Conferences
The Parish Conferences, through the Council of Santa Cruz County, are able to provide the services of a larger professionally-run Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization without sacrificing local direction and the passion of lay volunteers doing good in their own neighborhoods.
