Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Society of Saint Vincent de Paul manages the Helotes House of Neighborly Service in collaboration with Zion Lutheran Church, Helotes Hills United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church of Helotes, and Forest Hills Presbyterian Church. We support those in need of food, financial assistance for utility bills, school supplies, and limited clothing.
We ask for your prayers; that we may continue our much needed work. We thank you for your continuous financial support of our ministry.
In 2018, our ministry celebrated 25 years of service to our community. Our Society of St. Vincent de Paul currently has 28 active members, whose combined efforts donated over 1,000 volunteers hours of service last year helping to give support to over 650 people in our community.
In addition to helping supply the San Antonio Food Bank, our parishioners donated (through our ministry):
- 1,500 food items to the “40 Cans of Lent” Project
- 614 food items to our August Food Drive
- 702 bags of food to our Thanksgiving Food Drive (helping to feed families from our Parish Community; the community of our sister-church in San Antonio, and Holy Rosary Church)
- 905 gifts to our Christmas Giving Tree (received by families in three parishes)
- an average of $4,680 per month through our monthly second collection.
The help we offer is dictated by the amount of donations from YOU: our parishioners. We ask you to consider becoming a St. Vincent de Paul Volunteer. By giving as little as 4 hours a month of your time to our ministry, we can continue serving and making a difference in the lives of those most in need in our community.
We will be moving our Helotes House of Neighborly Service office to a NEW location in February. Details about our new address and its effective date will be shared in the coming weeks.
