23-svdpThe Society of St Vincent de Paul, a world wide Catholic Society, is composed of Christian lay persons seeking to develop in themselves a life of charity through friendship and participation in Society works bearing witness to the love of Christ.

Most members of the Society are voluntary workers who freely undertake to devote some of their talents, and resources.

In our Holy Spirit Parish we meet every Tuesday night at 7pm at the Parish Centre for about 1 hour. We pray, discuss our concerns for those in hardship, evaluate what has been done in the past week and what can be done to help those in need, and we enjoy each other's company.

At other times, we go out in pairs to visit those in need, sharing friendship and charity.

We distribute food, clothing & furniture and we provide some limited financial assistance where we can to alleviate hardship.

Youth may also be involved with the Society for information click this link http://www.parravinnies.org.
