The Society of St. Vincent de Paul St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic organization of lay persons who seek to help those who are suffering in a spirit of justice and charity, and by a person to person involvement. The society has two aims: "To do a great deal of spiritual good to its members through the exercise of charity, and to do a little spiritual and temporal good to a few poor families in the name of Jesus Christ." (Manual, St. Vincent De Paul Society) Members strive to achieve the Society's aims by visiting the needy individuals and their families, offering financial and/or spiritual aid, and establishing personal contact. The Society serves everyone, regardless of creed, opinion, color, origin or caste. Meetings are held monthly and are publicized in the church bulletin.
