The Society of Saint Vincent De Paul


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international organization, organized locally into Conferences. Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, or Vincentians, are men and women who wish to grow spiritually by offering person to person service to our neighbors in need, and we follow the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and our Patron St. Vincent de Paul. We are diverse in our backgrounds, but we are all blessed with an awareness that we are called to share our time, talent and treasures with others and believe that this is a call to holiness.  

Vincentians are united by a spirit of poverty, humility and sharing. We meet on a regular basis, are nourished by prayer, and adhere to a basic Rule. We believe that any service we provide to our neighbor in need is an encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.

We make home visits in pairs and offer tangible assistance while maintaining confidentiality and dignity to those we serve. We work closely with other agencies such as Between the Cracks and Salvation Army.

We operate a food pantry on a monthly basis, which is one of the largest free choice pantries in northern Rhode Island. We provide holiday gift baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as Christmas gifts to children age 16 and younger.
