Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Archdiocesan Council of Oklahoma City

    The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is largely a volunteer driven organization.  Most
    of the Vincentians (volunteers) belong to groups called Conferences.  Our Conferences are
    located in Catholic parishes throughout the central and south-western part of the State of
    Oklahoma.  

START A CONFERENCE IN YOUR PARISH

    We are always in need of new Conferences which are the "grass roots" of Vincentian organization.  If you are interested in starting a Conference within your
    parish here are some basic steps to take:

  • Ask the priest/parish council and others to personally support the start-up of a Conference and to invite prospective members to join.

  • Contact the Archdiocesan Council of Oklahoma City to schedule an "Invitation to Serve" by going to the "Contact Us" page and  sending an e-mail to us
    or call us at 405-364-0896.  Notices of the upcoming "Invitation to Serve" will be placed in the parish bulletin prior to the presentation to the
    parishioners either before or following the weekend masses.

  • Next, schedule a follow-up meeting for those who expressed an interest in joining.  During this short meeting, prospective members will learn what
    types of work members of a Society of St. Vincent de Paul conference do within their local communities to assist the needy.

  • Conference members will elect a President and the President will appoint officers.

  • Conferences meet at least twice a month.

  • Vincentians will be available to assist the new Conference until  assistance is no longer required.

  • Contact us if you have questions concerning the process and for assistance in establishing a new Conference.

    "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
    naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me....Amen, I say to you, whatever
    you did for one of the least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."


    Mt. 25: 35-40
