Society of St Vincent De Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a 501c3 faith-based, non-profit organization established in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in 1871 to serve those in need.

Our mission is to grow spiritually through person-to-person service to all in need in our community. We do this through our network of charity made up of spirituality, friendship, and service.

The Society is made up of 58 parish-based chapters, called Conferences. Our Conferences have a combined 1,900 parish-based volunteers called Vincentians. They help the Society by visiting our friends and neighbors in need and referring them to our programs.

The Society has a Vincentian Services Center that houses the majority of our programs. This location also welcomes our Good Samaritan volunteers. They help the Society by maintaining our programs ready to serve the community.

Together, as ONE SOCIETY, we serve our friends and neighbors living within the ten-country area of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Our specific mission demands that we be well-formed and able to form others, capable of comprehending what goes on in people’s lives and offering an opportune response.

The philosophical and theological studies will be oriented according to the classical-realist tradition, which both the Fathers of the Church and the Scholastics assumed for the intellectual penetration of the faith.
