The first meeting of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in the United States was held in St. Louis, Missouri on November 20, 1845, only twelve years after its foundation in Paris. So this Friday is the 175th anniversary of the Society in the USA.

As just one example of the many St. Vincent de Paul conferences across the U.S., we would like to share this video showing how the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin County, California has adapted to serve their neighbors in need despite the many challenges of COVID-19.


The St. Louis Council will be celebrating the 175th by livestreaming a Mass beginning at 9:30AM Central Time, this Friday Nov. 20. More information here.
