The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an international Catholic organization of more than 750,000 lay men and women, who seek to help the suffering in a spriti of justice and charity, through person-to-person involvement. Founded in France, in 1833, with St. Vincent de Paul as its patron, in the United States today there are more than 59,000 members in 4,300 conferences.
Vincentians seek through prayer, meditation on Scripture, and the teachings of the Church, to bear witness to the love of Christ through their daily lives and in their relationships with those in need.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society and its work have been encouraged by the Bishops of Trenton to provide a special means for lay-people to participate in the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy through a time-tested organization with national and international support.
The first conference in the Diocese of Trenton was organized at St. John the Baptist Church (now Sacred Heart Church), Trenton, in 1859. The last report indicates membership in all four counties of the diocese, with 245 active members and 78 associate members.
