Society of St. Vincent de Paul
This society is an international association of Catholic laymen engaging systematically in personal service of the poor and was founded in May, 1833, when eight young men, students at the Sorbonne, assembled in the office of the "Tribune Catholique" to formulate plans for the organization of a society whose object should be to minister to the wants of the Parisian poor.

The society's founder, Frederick Ozanam, following the inspiration of its chosen patron St. Vincent de Paul, modeled the rules upon the same principles that were in vogue in the seventeenth century. The rules adopted were very simple; it was forbidden to discuss politics or personal concerns at the meetings, and it was settled that the work should be the service of God in the persons of the poor, whom the members were to visit at their own dwellings and assist by every means in their power. The service of the members was to embrace, without distinction of creed or race, the poor, the sick, the infirm, and the unemployed.

Members of this society have been appointed by the pastor. This is a very vital organization dedicated to serving the poor and needy of the parish community since forming in 1999. Examples of the services provided include Christmas and Thanksgiving food baskets, clothing and assistance with utility bills. This group meets every second Wednesday of the month. See the parish bulletin for meeting times.
