St. Vincent de Paul Conference at St. Francis
Society of St. Vincent de Paul The St. Francis Outreach Ministry would like to establish a St. Vincent de Paul Conference at our parish.

Vincentians gather together in groups called conferences which focus on spirituality, fellowship, and works of charity. Works of Charity may include homeless services and home visits to the poor.

To establish a conference we must first identify a leadership group consisting of volunteers serving as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. We can then develop a plan of action to identify services that can be offered to assist our parishioners.

If you are interested in being considered for a leadership position, please contact Richard Hernandez at or call 916-443-8084 x114 to meet and review the program.

Those interested in volunteering should possess a great desire to work with the poor and needy, make the required time commitment, and possess skill sets of working with groups and conducting training.

In advance, thank you very much and we look forward to implementing this very exciting program to serve our parish.

Richard A. Hernandez, Direct of Outreach

St. Francis Step and Breakfast Ministry - Your Spirit and Welcoming Presence is needed
Step Ministry VolunteerThis very special ministry is in need of volunteers. Our Step Ministry provides a safe, peaceful and private place for our guests to sleep each night at the Parish Center courtyard. This ministry is rooted in scripture and responds to the call to welcome strangers, provide shelter to the wanderer, and not turn away from the needs of others.

As a Step Minister you would have the opportunity to serve as a welcoming presence for our Step guests as they arrive in the evening or, as a Breakfast Minister, help to provide a simple prepared breakfast before they leave to face the challenges of their day. The time commitment is 5:45 pm to 7:30 pm for the Step Ministry OR 5:30 am to 7:00 am for the Breakfast Ministry. Most Step Ministers commit to one evening a week, and Breakfast Ministers for two mornings a month. However, we are happy to try to create a schedule that works for you! Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of the Step/Breakfast Ministry family. We would love to have you join us.

"Homeless not only from the room made of bricks, but homeless from being rejected, unwanted, completely torn out of society....that unwanted one is my brother and my sister....We belong to each other."—Mother Theresa
