Our Conferences

One of the greatest ways of doing good to the poor is to show them respect and consideration.

It all started when…

One young man in Paris and his friends were challenged to think about what they were doing to help the poor. 

Frederic Ozanam founded the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in 1830 when he was 20.  The Society took St. Vincent de Paul as its patron.  Sister Rosalie Rendu guided the Society in its efforts to transform the slums of Paris by providing person-to-person service to those in need.  

Today, St. Vincent de Paul Appleton is connected to local Conferences based in area Catholic churches, where memebrs enhance our community by providing outreach, making home visits, and doing the necessary work that will ultimately help end poverty through systemic change. 

Last year, our Conferences were able to meet the needs of 2,050 individuals experiencing poverty.  This required 3,713 hours of service from 95 volunteers.
