Letter from the President


Welcome to the website of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, Mission Church Conference. My hope is that this site serves to inform you and rekindle that “good that is in each of us”, the desire to be our brother’s keeper.

Our conference membership represents a diversity of backgrounds, talents and interests; among them are research scientists, writers, social workers, business people, fundraisers, as well as retirees. 


Our mission is to spiritually grow through works of charity. Charity, as defined by the great religions of the world, has a recurring doctrine:  “Everything belongs to God and must be used for the well-being of all humanity”; ”Giving of one’s possessions, no matter how small, for the sake of helping those in need is a blessing and a means of purifying our souls”; “By giving in times of ease and hardship, your own sustenance will increase”; “Practicing selflessness is thought to increase one’s own merit”. Giving is an expression of our natural qualities of kindness and compassion”. Our Creator has established this very rich and compelling dynamic; as we help others, we help ourselves! How great is our God!

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is one of the oldest and most respected charities in the world. Hopefully, you will take a moment to peruse our site to learn more about our history, our activities and fabulous sponsors. We serve all people without discrimination or judgment.

In closing, God needs us to do His work on earth. People who can step back from the secular world trappings of avarice and indifference and into renewal of their spirituality. Find a way of giving without being asked. Find a way to share your blessings with others. So, there it is, dear friend, the call to put your faith into action. May God bless you.
