The Society is for people who feel a need to improve their Christian life and view the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul as a means to accomplish this end. It requires a compassionate person who sees this service as a way to act on their faith.

There are a number of ways you can get directly involved in service to those in need.

The parish based conferences welcome and appreciate the assistance provided by volunteers. This type of service is perfect for someone who wants to get involved and make a difference but doesn’t feel they can commit on a regular basis at this time. As an auxiliary member you will be helping to turn concern into action and will get to know the Society and the local members. Use our conference directory to find the parish nearest you to contact them directly.

Full membership is not for everyone as it involves a further level of involvement in terms of time and commitment to participating in the meetings and activities of the Society. These requirements are outlined in our information package for prospective members.

Contact the parish office of your nearest Catholic church or our head office to determine if there is an active conference nearby.  You will be directed to the appropriate person to handle your enquiry.

We also gratefully accept monetary support, including donations of investments, to fund our work. Click below to read our full donation package, or contact us to receive information about legacy planning and memorial donations.
