St. Patrick’s St. Vincent de Paul Conference

Are you looking for an opportunity to serve Christ in those suffering from poverty and injustice?

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a lay organization dedicated to finding Christ through personal contact with the poor and downcast. The St. Patrick’s Conference of St. Vincent de Paul has operated uninterrupted since its inception in 1912, making it the oldest conference west of the Rockies[i]. Today, the St. Patrick’s conference continues its original mission “to live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice and joy.” 

The St. Patrick’s conference meets on the second Sunday of every month from 12:30pm – 1:30pm in the St. Therese of Lisieux room at St. Patrick’s Parish. Members organize and prepare food for a weekly soup kitchen that feeds the hungry, deliver Christmas hampers to the needy in December and host a yearly Christmas Dinner on the Feast of the Epiphany.

If you’re interested in serving Mount Pleasant’s poor and vulnerable population through membership in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, contact chapter President, Ivan Douglas. Come together as a family and learn to see Christ in those who suffer.
