Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is composed of women and men who seek their personal holiness by works of charity. This is one essential way that the society, therefore, differs from other charitable associations or agencies. Their principal objective is not the spiritual advancement of their members as such, but the doing of good for someone. If you would like to assist the St. Mary St. Vincent de Paul Society, or would like more information, please contact the Parish Office at 412-221-1560.
Ushers & Greeters
Four Ushers and a Greeter(s) serve at each Mass. A Greeter(s) welcomes members and visitors before Mass, passing out bulletins. Ushers are needed to take the collection during Mass. Ushers and Greeters are always needed at each Mass, especially the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass. Families are encouraged to serve as Ushers or Greeters. This is a very simple but important way to serve the church! If you are able to volunteer for either of these important roles, please contact the Parish Office
