A Local Movement

The Society has served Rhode Island since 1877. Today, our 724 active Vincentians are organized into 35 parish-based conferences. Last year, we provided help to 120,000 of our fellow citizens!

Welcome! Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul helps women and men to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy, in the tradition of our founders, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam and Blessed Rosalie Rendu, and our patrons, St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. We are an independent, lay, Catholic organization, and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
