St. Vincent de Paul Society

Inspired by Gospel values, the St. Vincent de Paul Society leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering. The Blue Hills Collaborative St. Vincent de Paul Society serves the needs of the Greater Hyde Park community. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic rule: Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Boston

In order to serve more of those in need, we are in significant need of new members.

“The poor you will always have with you.” (Matthew 26:11 (NAB)).  Jesus taught that love for God joyfully impels us to love His greatest creation, humankind, and even more so the poor, needy, sick, lost and hurt among them.  Our Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is looking for new members, parishioners driven to love and help the People of God who are in need.  Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering. Members witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, we see the face of Christ. To learn more about what being a Vincentian means, please contact parishioner John McCormack.

Our meeting will consist of prayer, reflections on scripture passages, reports of visits, discussion of pending cases. This meeting will be the continuation of our formal meetings in order to grow in Vincentian Spirituality and to better and more frequently discuss strategies to assist the needy within the Collaborative’s territory. 

“Many hands make light work,” the immortal Vince Lombardi said. "Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work." Please consider collaborating with us in whatever ways you can to help our Conference and our Society provide a good experience to its members and to better assist those in need. As Cub Scouts say and do, let's each of us: “Do Your Best.”  

If you know of a practicing Catholic who might be a good addition for our Society, please invite them to the meeting to come and explore whether the Society would be a good fit for their spiritual needs and interest in serving those in need. No Commitment Is Required to Attend! Please pray on how you can best assist our Society.

Freewill Offering

We have a wonderful St Vincent de Paul Society conference at Most Precious Blood Parish which works with the families of St. Pius X, St Anne and Most Precious Blood who are struggling financially. Our conference consists of parishioners from the three parishes all working together to serve the needs of those who are not so fortunate as others.  At Christmas and Thanksgiving their work is very evident but they are responding to families in our 3 parish communities 12 months a year.  We are appreciative of those who donate in our St Vincent de Paul boxes at church and others who send in generous donations periodically. The needs are so great today that we decided to take up a freewill offering on the weekend of March 3-4 at every Mass at all 3 parishes to benefit our St Vincent de Paul Society.  Members of our conference will be at the entrances of the church at the conclusion of each Mass.  We guarantee that any donation you make will go to help support those among us with the least opportunities.  If you make out a check, please make it out to MPB St Vincent de Paul Society.
