Random Acts of Kindness (RAOK)

Serving the Soup Kitchen of St. Vincent De Paul & Catholic Charities

Many are served in the Soup Kitchen of St. Vincent De Paul and through Catholic Charities. Members are encouraged to sign up in advance.  Don't miss out on your opportunity to grow in Spirit by serving others a meal or assisting with basic needs. 

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
