Each year the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's St. Victor's Conference raises funds for our parish's Christmas Giving Tree. In the past, our parishioners have provided gifts for our neighbors in need and we then organize, wrap and distribute those gifts. But this year, due to Covid, we had to change our process. So rather than gifts, we are asking for monetary donations to this fund so we can purchase gift cards for each member of our families. Our desire is to continue our tradition of providing needy families with a little something to open at Christmas. Since 1946 The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been helping the needy of Santa Clara County. We help anyone and everyone regardless of race, creed, religion or  sexual orientation. All proceeds donated will be used exclusively to directly provide to the needy and all donations are tax deductible. Help us help others during this Christmas season!

Registration for our Catechetical Ministry (CM) Program, elementary thru high school, is now available by appointment. Please call our Director of Religious Education at 408-928-1637 or email janine.pascual@dsj.org to schedule

an appointment to register.
