Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP)

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an international, fraternal organisation of Catholic lay people who practice their Christianity by helping those in need on a person to person basis. The members meet weekly, firstly to support their efforts by prayer, and secondly to assess the needs of the poor in their particular area and how on a practical basis to meet that need. The society encourages self-help projects.

If anyone is interested in joining or learning more about the society please contact the Rectory Office, or visit SVP Website: www.svp.org.uk
