Who We Are and How We Help
The St. Vincent de Paul Society was founded in Denver in 1888. Initially located in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, the Society now has 30 conferences in the Denver Metro area. For the past 125 years, the society has provided a myriad of human services and relief activities for those in need.
Our St. Vincent de Paul Society chapter meets the first Thursday of the month in the Assisi Hall. Everyone is welcome to participate in our ministry.
With the goal of social justice; the mission of the St Vincent de Paul Society
is to serve those in need, in the geographical area of St Francis Parish,
through community outreach following the "Way" taught by Christ.
"Help honors when to the bread that nourishes it adds the visit that consoles, the advice that enlightens, the friendly shake of the hand that lifts up the sinking courage; when it treats the poor man not only as an equal but as a superior, since he is suffering what perhaps we are incapable of suffering; since he is the messenger of God to us, sent to prove our justice and our charity, and to save us by our works."
Founder of the St. Vincent de Paul Society
