Windsor Essex Central Council follows the Rule of the international Society. It is involved in Special Works apart from feeding the hungry and clothing the needy.
The cost of a stay is paid for children and young people who otherwise would not have such an opportunity. At the camp these children and youth develop an affinity and spiritual connection with nature and become aware of environmental issues. Last year alone we sent 30 children / youth to camp that would otherwise have been unable to go.
The "Jail Committee" is made up of men and women Vincentians committed to serving the incarcerated and their families.
Regular friendly visits to our local jail are intended to bring hope and guidance to prisoners. Special occasions are celebrated with a "Jug Up", pizza, pop, candy, friendship.
Families, especially children, are often the silent sufferers when a loved one is in jail. It is the mission of SSVP to try to bring hope to these young ones. Clothing, food, smiles and understanding are provided by this ministry.
Twinning is a special work of the Society. It is a fraternal sharing of the Society’s Prayers, relations and resources with less fortunate conferences and councils abroad.
No act of charity is foreign to Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Special projects and programs are part of what Vincentians are called to do.
