Over 200 strong, over 2 million served…

St. Vincent de Paul Men’s Club

President: Joe Asiano                         Vice-President: Ken Schwing

Secretary: Tom McCarville                    Treasurer: Rick Gandolfo

The SVdP Men’s Club is for all men who are parishioners or have children in St. Vincent De Paul School. Whether single, married, with children, without children, young or old—you are welcome. This is not just a St. Vincent de Paul School Fathers Club, but truly a parish and school Men's Club that’s over 200 men strong.

The SVdP Men’s Club has three primary aspects—social, charitable and fundraising—and at all times having fun! The social aspect is all about creating community and camaraderie among members of the SVdP parish and school. The Men's Club holds three dinner meetings each year where the membership gets together to eat, drink, talk, do a little Men’s Club business—and just plain have a great time. These dinners are FREE for Men's Club members.

You will find several generations of men at each Men’s Club dinner meeting including dads of students for virtually every SVdP School grade and men you see every Sunday at church—so you are guaranteed to be with other men you have much in common with. You can bet you will find yourself among familiar and friendly faces.

Charitable Fund Raising

The Men's Club runs several events each year to raise funds both to improve the school many of our children attend and help the parish. Some of the Men's Club sponsored events include:

   •  Parish Picnic (third Saturday in September)

   •  Thanksgiving Breakfast (Thanksgiving Day after 9:15 AM Mass)

   •  Cioppino Dinner (last Saturday in January)

   •  Spring Breakfast (Sunday in late April after 10 AM mass)

   •  Viking Golf Tournament (second Friday in May)

You can contribute to the parish and the school by joining the Men's Club and attending or helping with these events.

Members with children in SVdP School can get School Service Hours by volunteering to work these events.
