The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic volunteer organization whose mission is to seek out and serve the forgotten, suffering and deprived; promote the dignity of the person; and alleviate human suffering and distress, while correcting problems and practices that cause these conditions. The St. Jerome ministry reaches out to the less fortunate in our area with food, clothing, furniture, appliances, housing assistance, Christmas gifts to shut-in seniors, support for parish school families, and other forms of financial assistance, as well as, referrals and linkages to other needed services. The Society also owns and operates Circle V Ranch Camp and Retreat Center near Santa Barbara, which embraces youth-centered programming and provides innovative and enriching outdoor experiences that build self-esteem; knowledge; and appreciation for God, nature and others.
