Helping Those in Need in Meridian Township and Okemos
Members of our Parish form this Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and have a mission to help people within our Parish boundaries who find themselves in temporary need of assistance, typically of a one-time nature.
As needs arise, this web page will display help sought through our St. Martha Conference for the benefit of those requesting assistance in our community.
Before any request for help is placed on this web page, members of our Conference will have visited the family or individual requesting assistance in order to verify the need and determine the type and amount of assistance we hope to provide.
If you are able to contribute with any or all needs as they are listed, we ask you to please donate by responding to clicking on the 'current needs' link above the needs.
Council meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month immediately following the 10 am Mass in our Conference Room from September through May, and once per month in June, July, and August (dates TBA. If you are interested in helping within the Council we enthusiastically welcome new members and ideas!
