  • Problems vs. Opportunities

    Problems vs. Opportunities

    Are you facing a difficult situation? Do you see a problem in front of you? Does it all seem too difficult to overcome? What you see as a problem could actually be an opportunity.

    “God Made a Vincentian”

    God said, "I need somebody willing to feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty.” So God made a Vincentian. "I need somebody to greet a stranger, clothe the naked, help the sick and visit those in prison.” So God made a Vincentian
  • Walk with Me

    Walk with Me

    When we take a walk with a friend, it is healthy, fun and rejuvenating to our body, mind and spirit. When we walk with a neighbor in need, it is that much more rewarding. Those who walk with the forgotten, suffering or deprived feel especially renewed in spirit – this is what the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo County (SVdP) volunteers do every day.
