Society of St Vincent de Paul

  

     Holy Trinity Conference Oconto of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Inc. 

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 Conference Oconto of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was restarted in 1999 and fully aggregated on March 26th, 2004.  Members serve those in need in the community, volunteer at Bread By the Bay food pantry and assist with providing MANNA meals (a free meal provided monthly in the community).  Members hold rummage and bake sales to serve those in the community and raise funds to serve the poor.

The Vincentians (Active members of the Society) meet monthly.  Meeting times vary and are published in the weekly bulletin and on the parish calendar.

The Society welcomes new members and is grateful for referrals regarding those in need.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul can now be reached at (920) 604-2320.  Messages will be retrieved by volunteers daily, Monday-Friday.  If you know of someone in need, please encourage them to leave a voicemail for a Vincentian.
