Saint Vincent de Paul Society

The Saint Vincent De Paul Society is a lay organisation that was established in 1833 by a young Frenchman, Frederic Ozanam, to look after the poor, the lonely and the destitute in his native Paris. Since then SVP branches, or “Conferences” as they are called, are to be found throughout the world carrying on this work by serving vulnerable members within their communities.

In St Anthony’s Parish the main work of the SVP is befriending the housebound and the lonely by visiting them in their homes, care homes or in hospital. Twice a year we arrange a healing Mass and party (Easter and Christmas).

Although are funds are limited, we also attempt to provide material help to members of our community whenever and wherever it is needed. Material help could be in the form of furniture, clothing and bedding, food etc.

Do you know someone who is housebound and would like one of our members to visit them?

Could you help in our service by sparing one hour a week to visit someone? Or would you like to know more about the work of the  SVP?

If so please contact Fr Peter or Deacons Tom or John and we will arrange for a member of our Conference to contact you.

More details can also be found on the  SVP  web site www.svp.org.uk
