The society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international society founded in Paris in 1833 by Blessesed Frederic Ozanam and a group of University students. Groups are also known as ‘Conferences’ and these exist throughout the world.
“Turning concern into action”
The Conference at Our Lady & St Christopher’s was officially formed in 1946, originally as a men only group. In the 1970’s lady members were also admitted. Members meet weekly to pray together and plan – currently most of the work undertaken consists of visiting (in pairs) people in care homes, hospital or their own homes.
