St. Vincent de Paul

The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an organization comprised mainly of lay persons who serve the poor and less fortunate.

The Society was officially established in Paris, France in the 1830’s by Blessed Frédéric Ozanam and Emmanuel Bailly, and quickly spread to the UK, the US and Australia. St. Vincent de Paul, himself was an 18th century priest who cared for the poor and was known as the “Great Apostle of Charity.”

Today there are over 720,000 members in some 139 countries worldwide.

At St. Mary Magdalene, the St. Vincent de Paul Chapter serves those in our community that are in need. This is primarily done by connecting the poor and needy with resources and organizations that can help them. St. Vincent de Paul can also assist with things like food vouchers, food banks, utilities, and gift cards for SVDP thrift stores for clothing and other needs in a temporary capacity.
