Commodities program benfits SVdP families

We are happy to announce that March completed our first month in the commodities program.
Over 170 families benefited from this additional food supply.
The value of March’s commodities was an additional $79 per family in groceries above the ‘regular’ items families receive.
We are so blessed to be able to help our neighbors with the beneficial program.


On Sunday, March 3rd at 2:30PM, EWTN will rebroadcast the SVdP movie “ Our Faith In Action”.

This is an excellent presentation of the types of work done cross the country to help those in need.  Mark your calendar and learn more about the work of St Vincent de Paul helping our brothers and sisters in need.

Policy on Weather Closings

St. Vincent de Paul pantry has recently adopted a new inclement weather policy.  Our new policy is to be closed when the schools in Sterling/Rock Falls are closed.

Thank you for your understanding as this is a safety concern for all involved.

Check back here when in doubt about weather related closings.
