Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Inspired by the vision of St. Vincent de Paul to see Christ in the eyes of the Poor.
Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More Conference
What We Do
Home visits are the basis of the Society.
   As Vincentians we visit our neighbors in their homes and help to prevent homelessness through rent and utility bill assistance; we provide food, clothing and much more.  Through the generosity of our benefactors in Catholic Parishes and others in Tallahassee, our conference is able to distribute goods and provide financial assistance to help families meet basic needs.

Who We Are
The Society is an international organization of lay Catholics who seek to grow in holiness by following Jesus' clear commandment to all of us to help the poor and needy around  us. We call ourselves "Vincentians", in tribute to St. Vincent de Paul.

We are a Society of people listening to people's struggles and hardships and trying to help them in the best way we can.

We are a Society of people offering smiles and a listening ear; hope for those who feel as if they will never stop struggling, to those who see no light at the end of the tunnel.

We are a Society of people delivering food bags with a smile; of dignity delivered to those who need it most – a fresh perspective and a view of the possibilities.     
Join Society of St. Vincent de Paul members on their spiritual growth journey through service to people in need.  In this special presentation, join Vincentians in a home visit with a family in need, helping the homeless in a downtown shelter and working with returning citizens through prison ministry.  See our Catholic faith in action through the volunteers of this unique lay vocation and Christ’s face in those they serve.
​   
Our Society of St. Vincent de Paul Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More (STM) Conference makes an average of 10-12 home visits a month assisting our neighbors with utility and rent payments and assorted other needs. We purchase about $500 of food items making 48 bags every month for the needy Casa Calderon residents. We also purchase $100 of food items and donate them once a month to the Kearney Center kitchen and our team of 6-8 faithful volunteers serves approximately 260+ dinners once a month to the hungry poor at the Kearney Center.
