What’s it all about?

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an International Catholic Organization of lay people which was
founded in Paris in 1833 by Blessed Frederic Ozanam and his companions.
Placed under the patronage of St Vincent de Paul, it is inspired by his thinking and his works. It seeks, in
a spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering. It does this by person to person involvement of its members.
Membership is open to men and women of all ages and denominations. Join our group and give your
time to support individuals, families and communities in need.

Our Meetings

Our Meetings are held in the Pastoral Centre on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm or after Mass.

How to become a Member

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Full Member, please contact Fr Jobin / Fr Rionelle who will put
you in touch with an SVP Member.

If you would like to help but find that other commitments do not make it possible, becoming an
Auxiliary Member might be the answer.

Our Activities
We provide help and support wherever possible for those who need it within our Parish or
nearby locations.
We provide a “listening ear” to the lonely, housebound and assist, if possible, with any problem
solving whether financial or emotional etc.


Many of the Conference within the Archdiocese are “twinned” with Conferences abroad, particularly India and
Sudan and seek to support them, especially financially. Our Conference is twinned with St Francis Parish,
Kummaripalam and Lourde Matha, Mullaringadu (both in India).

If you think that you could help us in this kind of voluntary work, we would
love to recruit new members with any ideas on how to help people within
the Walsall locality.
