St. Vincent De Paul Society

svdppatFounded in 1833 by six university students in Paris under the patronage of St. Vincent de Paul, today the Society includes almost 900,000 members spread among 46,000 confraternities in 130 countries of five continents.

St. Vincent De Paul The Society’s purpose is to provide direct aid to those who suffer, and to help individuals reduce and even eliminate the causes of their suffering, themselves. Society members use their own resources, sharing not only possessions but the valuable gift of their presence.

The current president of our local St. Vincent de Paul Society is Mrs. Madeline Leslie.

We are currently expanding our SVDP membership. Please call the church office at 318-256-5680 if you are able to help us.
