Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Who We Are

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is a Catholic lay organization founded in Paris in 1833. It is now a global Catholic organization dedicated to serving those in need. Inspired by gospel values, women and men join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service.

What We Do

The works we carry out are the Gospel message in action:

I was hungry, I was thirsty, I was a stranger,
I was naked, I was ill, I was in prison….
and you cared.
(Mt. 25: 35-36)

Financial Support

All financial assistance is possible thanks to the generosity of St. Mary’s parishioners through their donations to the church Poor Boxes and Second Collections. Prayerfully consider supporting the Society with a regular contribution.
