Parish Blood Drive: The St. Vincent Blood Drives were started over 30 years ago to provide a convenient way for parishioners to donate blood to cover their needs, fellow parishioner needs, and to be of service to the community. There are five- six blood drives held each year at the parish. Support of the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center through giving at the parish blood drives helps to ensure a safe and adequate blood supply for the community. Volunteers are always needed to encourage donations and to assist at the drives. Contact Mary Ann Beachler, 713-665-0086; or Margaret Welch, 713-623-8175.
