Food Bank & Face to Face

St. Vincent's Food Cupboard will now deliver to their clients.  If you would like to receive food, please call 215-438-1514 and leave your name and number on the voicemail.  If you would like to donate food, please leave your donations on the porch of the rectory, between noon and 3pm, Monday through Friday.  Please don't ring the bell.  Thank you.

Face to Face is currently offering to-go meals, fresh produce, and non-perishable supplies in individual bags and family boxes to anyone in need. These are distributed in the large parking lot next to our building.

Our distribution schedule is Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon (12pm) to 2pm. Individuals can line up (properly spaced out) in front of our building on the sidewalk and we we have just one group of people come into the lot to collect items at a time to help keep everyone safe. Mondays we hand out non-perishable bags as well as a hot meal and on Fridays we also distribute toiletry kits with soap and other items.

We are asking that folks who come to collect food share their name, household size, and a phone number where we can reach them so that our staff can call and check in on them and see if there is anything else we can do to help.

We are also still offering our Legal and Social Services over the phone.

Laudato Si’ at 5

Laudato Si’ at 5: 5th anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home.

The anniversary will be marked between Laudato Si’ week (May 16-May 24) and June 18th (the date of the encyclical’s publication). In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis calls on the world to “dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet”.


St. John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M.

John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M., was a French priest, who served as a missionary in Wuhan (Hubei Province, the origin of the current pandemic) China, where he became a martyr. He was canonized in 1996 by Pope John Paul II.

At this time we can call on his intercession. We will be displaying his picture during this current pandemic.
