Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is dedicated to providing emergency assistance to needy families or individuals in our community. Conference members will contact these families or individuals to arrange an appointment to determine how they can be of assistance. Vincentians do not judge those they serve, but listen and understand with their hearts. Their vocation is to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love.
- Our members meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month.
- Meetings are held in a spirit of fraternity, simplicity and Christian joy.
- For more information or assistance call 708-425-4117.
