S.V.P.

The St Vincent de Paul Society (or as it is often known - the SVP) is an international Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing practical assistance to those in need – irrespective of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender.

The Society is a lay organisation initially formed in Paris in 1833 by Blessed Frédéric Ozanam and his companions, and active in England & Wales since 1844. Placed under the Patronage of St Vincent de Paul, it is inspired by his thinking and works.

It seeks, in the spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering poverty in whatever form. - See more at: http://svp.org.uk/#sthash.ohwPPbbI.dpuf

Our Parish has it's own SVP group and is always welcoming of new members to help support the work. St Therese of Lisieux Primary School also has it's own Mini Vinnies group. This page will provide information on the activities of the SVP group and information on how you can get involved.

SVP Meeting
