St. Vincent de Paul Conference

Men and women dedicated to serving others through hands-on outreach to the poor and the needy throughout the City of San Francisco. To volunteer, to donate, to support in any way, contact Catherine Mazer, 415.324.7008

The ministry of a Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is to bring concrete aid and the comfort of the Gospel to the needy and the suffering.

This loving service, in turn, brings each member closer to God and helps the relationship with him grow. This activity witnesses to the world that Christ and his Gospel message are alive today and being preached through action at the local level.

 Works on behalf of the needy are the most vivid expression of Christ's presence in the world. Such works he willed to be signs of his messianic mission (Mt. 11: 4-5) in the world.
