About the society
The society of St. Vincente De Paul is an international Catholic Organization of lay persons founded in France by Blessed Frederick Ozanam and his companions in 1833. Placed under the patronage of St. Vincente De Paul, it derives its inspiration from thinking and work, and seeks, in a spiritb of justice and charity and by a person-to-person involvement of its members, to help those who are suffering.
The society is present in about 110 countries world-wide and is constantly growing. Because of its spread, the society is governed by a hierarchy of Councils.
In October of every year, all Vincentians world-wide celebrate the feast day of St. Vicent de Paul. The society world-wide operates a twinning programme.
