  • 170 Years and Counting

    The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is marking 170 years in the U.S. providing help to people in need. In 1845, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was established in St. Louis, Mo. at the Basilica of St. Louis, King of France, popularly called "The Old Cathedral." The first official meeting of the Society in the United States was held on November 20, 1845.
    On this day, a group of 19 Catholic laypersons and one priest met to establish a Conference (chapter) of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Officers were elected and a collection was taken up that amounted to $17.70 to help people in need. This was the start of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in the U.S.

  • Domestic Disaster Relief Fund Appeal

    Society of St. Vincent de Paul members in Northern California are responding to the recent wildfires that affected Lake and Calaveras counties and other areas. More than 1,200 homes have been destroyed displacing thousands of people. Because of the great devastation caused by these fires, all of the SVdP Councils in Northern California have been helping people with short-term and long-term disaster recovery.

    Vincentians in South Carolina are helping families affected by the rain and flooding. SVdP members are providing short-term and long-term recovery assistance for flood victims in South Carolina. The rainfall has set records all over the state, flooding entire towns. Thirteen dams in the state have failed, making the flooding even worse and people are still dealing with hundreds of road and bridge closures.

    It will take years for California and South Carolina to recover from these epic wildfires and floods. Please pray for all the families who have lost their homes to disasters and continue to support the efforts of Vincentians to help them. Please help now!
