St. Vincent de Paul
“The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul dates back to 1833. Frederick Ozanam and six other students started the society as a response to the poverty they witnessed in Paris, France. These university students offered comfort and assistance to the poor in their midst. They chose to name their organization after their patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
Saint Vincent de Paul was a French priest who lived in the seventeenth century in France. Saint Vincent de Paul dedicated his adult life to serving the poor. It was his spirit of service to the needy that Frederick and his friends hoped to emulate. And they did. Today the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul continues to minister to the poor in 144 countries on five continents.
The Society and Vincentians have been actively working to help alleviate the suffering of the needy in Windsor and Essex County since 1896. There are presently 29 conferences of the Society in Windsor and Essex County.
Since its inception in Windsor and Essex County the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has provided assistance to hundreds of thousands of our neighbours and friends. The men and women of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul continue to follow the example of their founders by working with humility and respect as they serve the poor, bearing witness to the love of God for all people.” – The SSVP Website
Meetings every Tuesday from 9am to 12noon in the SVDP Meeting Room at Holy Name of Mary Church.
Deliveries take place on Saturday from 9am to 12noon.
University Campus Ministry
We are located on the second floor of the Assumption University Building, next to the CAW. (look for the old building with green steeples and crosses)
Our first priority is the spiritual welfare of the students, faculty and staff of the University of Windsor, but since we are also connected with Assumption Parish, we are also here for anyone in the Windsor area who is looking for hope and goodness in their lives.
Our aim is to create a community where life’s tough questions can be discussed and through those discussions, people may come to know God’s mercy, love and Truth. So whether you have been a Catholic all your life, or are simply a person, unaffiliated with any religion, searching for meaning – know that you are welcome here.
In addition to the many activities you will read about, you will find that Assumption University Building provides Campus Ministry with some of the nicest, most comfortable spaces on campus. Our student lounge is a place where students can relax, study and/or just carry on a great conversation.
Also known as “Children of the Light”, this comprehensive youth ministry provides catechesis and religious formation for children, ages 8-18. Each Monday night, children gather for a common meal, followed by small group gatherings according to their age.
Volunteers are always encouraged, as they are needed to take care of the large amount of participants.
Every Monday from 6pm to 8pm in the Basement Hall of Holy Name of Mary Church.
