Mission: Inspired by Gospel Values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic lay organization that leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and its patron, St. Vincent de Paul. As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gathering and adherence to a basic Rule. Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because in them Vincentians see the fact of Christ.

In 1833 Blessed Frederic Ozanam, at age 19 along with 6 friends from his University, heard God calling them to serve the poor. They met with Blessed Sr. Rosalie Rendu who taught them how to visit the poor in their homes – this to help them fully experience the pain and suffering these people were experiencing. This small, inspired group are the founders of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. After visiting the poor, the group decided they needed money to continue this work. They decided to pool their resources together; however, so as not to embarrass each other as to how much each could afford to give they decided to take a secret collection using a common black bag.
Fast forward 187 years and here we are carrying on the mission and traditions of that small group of enthusiastic volunteers. Today, we ask you to join in this tradition of giving to support the special works of our Society. Whether its saving single moms from the crushing debt of payday loans, or freeing people from needing to choose between medications and paying the rent, helping grade school children do their homework, or keeping people in their homes.
While we cannot be together in person, we ask that you consider joining us virtually in the tradition of the black bag. Click here to schedule your Giving Tuesday Now donation today:

St. Pius X parishioners and east Dallas friends and neighbors came out in droves Saturday morning to help restock the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry for the St. Pius Conference. Special thanks to St. Pius pastor, Fr. Salvador Guzman, for his continuous support of SVdP’s ministry. He helped advertise the drive through YouTube and email. The St. Pius X Men's Club also rallied all their members and were a tremendous help, and one of our Vincentians brought out his Boy Scout troop who also donated tons of food! Thank you for supporting our neighbors in need! @ St Pius X Catholic Church
Last Friday, several pallets of home, personal, and auto care goods were distributed from The St. Vincent Center. Thank you to the Walmart Distribution Center for their ongoing support!

At SVdP, we're still remembering our warm, fuzzy feelings from the holidays...
Irving's SVdP Holy Family of Nazareth Conference had 26 families, with 90 children join us for this year's Angel tree project. In addition to gifts from their wish list, each family received a bag of fresh food, in addition to some non-perishable staples like flour, canned soup and pasta. The conference also was lucky to have a store of donated coats and jackets to hand out to those who needed one as well!
The families asked to not be photographed during the event, but were very excited about the opportunity to be a part of the program next year.
