The St Vincent de Paul Society, St Gerard Majella Conference began in 2014. We are one of eight Conferences in the North Georgia area which is known as District 9. We report directly to the St Vincent de Paul Society Georgia located in Atlanta.
The vision of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is to change the face of charity by offering hope and help to those we serve through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We offer a hand-up, not a handout, to those we serve in our community. We offer assistance with food, utilities, rent and other personal needs. It is not easy asking for help so their requests are always handled with confidentiality and consideration for their privacy and with dignity. The St Vincent de Paul Society, St Gerard Majella Conference extends assistance to our neighbors living in Chickamauga, Flintstone, Fort Oglethorpe, Lafayette, Ringgold, Rock Springs, and Rossville. They do not have to be of the Catholic Faith or attend our Church. Our service is there for all our neighbors in need within these 7 cities.
If you would like to join our conference and help us with our mission, you may reach out to our President, Donna Shipley at 423-718-6951. We meet at 7:00 p.m. the first and third Monday of every month. All are welcome to stop by to see what we do.
Those in need of assistance, reach out to our helpline at 678-892-6163, leave a phone number, name and a brief message as to what is needed; someone will call back within 48 hours.
