The Society's work may encompass any form of aid that alleviates suffering, and it strives to discover and redress situations which cause suffering.
Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The Society is a volunteer Catholic Lay Organization comprised of almost 1 million members in over 130 countries around the world. We visit the poor and needy people to provide comfort and financial assistance to those in need. Volunteers called “Vincentians” serve within parish groups called Conferences. We strive toward increased spiritual growth through acts of charity.
The South Florida Miami Council has over 1,200 volunteers operating out of 70 local Catholic Church Conferences, including one Mission Conference. We are constantly on the lookout for new members who have a passion and a vocation to help those less fortunate neighbors who are in need of a helping hand.
Generally on a person-to-person basis, members of the Society help those in need, regardless of race, creed, sex, orientation, handicap or religion.
