St Vincent DePaul Society

The St Vincent de Paul Society (or as it is often known - the SVP) is an international Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing practical assistance to those in need – irrespective of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender.


The Society is a lay organisation initially formed in Paris in 1883. Placed under the Patronage of St Vincent de Paul, it is inspired by his thinking and works. It seeks, in the spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering poverty in whatever form.


During  the  last  year  we  have:


  • Visited   people  who  are  housebound  or  unwell.

  • Supported   people  who  are  in  desperate  need, including refugees and asylum seekers.

  • Collected food  to  support Food Banks

  • Given out  many  grocery  parcels  over   the  Christmas  period.

  • Supported  the  SVP  charity  shops  in Tremorfa,  Barry  and Trowbridge.


For more information about the SVP, please see a member of the SVP after the 10am Mass on a Sunday.

If you think you would like to join the SVP, please see one of our members  and come along to one of our meetings.

This year we enroled many children from our

Primary School as Mini Vinnies.  We will pray for them and hope that they will be inspired to continue the work of St Vincent well into their adult lives.
