St. Vincent de Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Holy Trinity Oconto Conference
(Supported by St. Anthony & St. Patrick Parish)

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul was founded in 1833, in Paris, by Frederic Ozanam.  Frederic and a group of fellow students started to seek out and visit the poor in their homes, taking them bread and clothes, their friendship and their concern. The group took as their Patron,
St. Vincent de Paul.  Today, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide lay organization of Catholic men and women, young and old of every race, who strive to grow spiritually by offering
person-to-person service to those in need.

The Holy Trinity Oconto Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was restarted in 1999 and fully aggregated on March 26, 2004  Active members of the Society, called Vincentians, meet monthly and more often as needed. Meeting times are published in the bulletin.

 

Members hold a spring and fall rummage and bake sale. The sales provide low cost items to those in need and raise funds to serve the poor.

“God has already given you spiritual wisdom or you would not be sacrificing your precious free day to His poor.  Because you see Christ in His poor, I know you will approach each one you visit with humility as His servant.”  BLESSED ROSALIE RENDU
