St. Vincent de Paul – About Us

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international organization of laymen and women who seek in a spirit of justice and charity to help the poor, the needy and the disadvantaged through practical works of charity. In the tradition of its founder, Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul, the members of the Society assist the poor through person-to-person service (home visits) providing them with material aid, emotional support and spiritual comfort – whatever is necessary to empower them to become self-sufficient.

Saint Matthew’s Conference was established in 1968 and has been continually serving clients in the local community ever since. Our moderator is Father Chadwick and we serve with the consent of our pastor, Father Hewes.
