The SVdP St. Aloysius Conference has been serving the poor in their Estacada community for over 50 years. They started out delivering Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes, then realized there were hungry people in their area all year around. They now operate a pantry which is open twice a month for those in need. The conference also assists with rent and utility payments.

The St. Aloysius Conference is blessed with an abundance of volunteers, including many in small Estecada who don’t belong to St. Aloysius Catholic Church but just want to participate in helping the Conference with all the good they’re doing in the community.

The Conference also very much enjoys the visits from the Portland Council’s Mobile Kitchen the first and third Tuesdays of each month. The Mobile Kitchen is a rolling diner offering hot meals and place to sit and enjoy the company of others in this friendly community.

Current St. Aloysius Conference President is Judy Ziegelmayer.
