“…working to break the cycles of homelessness, substance abuse and domestic violence.”

St. Vincent de Paul Conference

We are a group of parishioners who join together in faith and friendship to provide person-to person service to those who are in need and suffering, in the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederick Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

Our mission is to be witnesses that Christ and his Gospel message are alive today by providing support, care and love to those in most need here in San Francisco. Jesus reminds us 'that whatever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me'.

The SVdP Conference meets every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, at 7:00pm, in the Parish Hall. Please join us to learn more about our many service and outreach activities.
