The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international voluntary Catholic Christian organisation.
Membership of the Society is open to anyone who can adopt our ethos. We draw our inspiration and energy from the Gospels and Catholic social teaching and attempt to live the core values (Love of God and Love of our neighbour) through an action oriented programme, working directly with people in need.
The Society has been in Ireland for since 1844 and has extensive experience of working with a diverse range of people who experience poverty and exclusion. Through a network of over 9,500 volunteers, it is strongly committed to working for social justice and advocates the creation of a more just and caring society.
IN OUR PARISH
