Who We Are:
The Society of St Vincent de Paul is a Catholic international volunteer organization whose mission is to help the poor. It was founded in Paris in 1833.
The CTK Conference assists with emergency food, shelter, rent/mortgage, utilities and other necessities within parish boundaries. Our primary purpose is to bring the hope, love and peace of Christ to those who are suffering. Each request for assistance is determined after a confidential review and our present resources. All monetary and food donations are targeted to the specific, current needs of the poor. We meet on the first and third Thursdays, 7 pm in the Parish Center. Come join us!
We are in partnership with Oregon Food Bank.
