St Vincent de Paul Society

Our History: 

Frederick Ozanam, our founder, said, “He envisioned the establishment of a network of charity and social justice encircling the world.”

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic organization of lay people. It was founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam and placed under the patronage of St. Vincent de Paul. It works by personal involvement of its members to help those in need.

Holy Innocents-St. Barnabas has a group of volunteers who operate a chapter on the Holy Innocents site. Contact this chapter at:  586-435-3152.

Meetings are held 1st Wednesday each month, 6:30p.m. in the Main Office basement.
