St. Vincent de Paul Bundle Sunday
Found some good stuff while cleaning the house but are concerned it no longer has a place in your home?
Worry no more! On May 21 & 22, after each of the Masses, St Anthony on the Lake’s St. Vincent de Paul Committee will collect clothing (in any condition) and small household items (no TV’s, computers, monitors…). Look for the SVdP truck in our upper parking lot, north of the main entrance to drop off donations. Questions? Call Anne Wolfe at 262.346.1649.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month in the parish meeting room at 7:00 pm. For more information about our services please contact Ann Wolfe at [email protected], 262-346-1649 or Patty Meehan at [email protected].
Help serve a meal to low income families in Milwaukee. Individuals and families with children over 8 years of age are welcome. Thank you so much for your continued help in this worthwhile program.
SVDP will resume the Southside Meal Program January 23rd. Due to Covid 19 there are many changes, please read the "Food Donator Item" list carefully for what can be brought. Your caller will also remind you of what can be brought every month. On the fourth Sunday of the month the food needs to be in the kitchen by noon so it can be delivered in time for prep. Servers are needed to assemble the "two go" meals and information on how to volunteer to do that is listed in the Server letter. Thank you so much for your assistance in making this program a success.
Any questions, please contact Anne Wolfe [email protected].

Inspired by Gospel values, the St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVdP) is a Catholic lay organization that embraces all works of charity and justice to serve the needs of the poor and needy in our community.

SVdP is able to provide financial assistance as well as referrals to other organizations and institutions that may be of help.
