About St. Hyacinth Parish & Food Pantry
The St. Hyacinth parish supports a food pantry with the goal to feed the hungry with compassion. Clients are below the federal poverty level, as the organization is considered an emergency food pantry. Clients are welcome to visit monthly to receive meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, bread, breakfast grains, dinner grains and plant proteins in accordance with federal requirements and following the “My Plate Nutrition Program.” The amount of food received is based on family size.
2,400 individuals are served each month; 40 percent are children. 200 “stock boxes” are served to seniors each month. 26 families are provided infant formula monthly.

St. Vincent de Paul Clothing Drive
On behalf of the Holy Apostles/St. Elizabeth Ann Seton St Vincent dePaul conference, thank you for your support of our fall clothing drive. This event supports the SVdP stores in Waukesha, Oconomowoc and Pewaukee. In addition to your donations filling the stores for shoppers, the stores provide employment and volunteer opportunities for many people. This past summer, through our Youth Ministry Summer Outreach Days, we were fortunate to have a group of teens and adults from Seton spend a day volunteering at our Waukesha store. How fortunate we are to have our Seton youth support our ministries.
Our conference supports neighbors in need in our New Berlin community. When a call is received, two Vincentians meet with the neighbor to see how we may be able to assist them both monetarily and prayerfully. One possible way of helping them is a monetary store voucher where they can shop for clothing and household items they need.
We always welcome new members to our conference. Maybe the Holy Spirit is calling you to seek opportunities to get involved. If you are interested in learning more about our SVdP conference, please contact Debbie Pscheid at [email protected]
In our migrant community, just like others, many have lost their jobs. However, unlike most of us, many migrants and their families will not be receiving a stimulus check, even though many pay into our income tax system. The Migrant Ministry is supporting the Migrant MKE Food Drive to help these families not go hungry. We are collecting non-perishable food items such as flour, oil, beans, rice, cereal and canned goods. These can be either dropped off at 13320 W North Lane, New Berlin, or if you need it picked up, please contact Joanna Boey at 262-853-4033 or Send us a message.
