de Paul

St. Vincent was born of poor parents in the village of Pouy in Gascony, France, about 1580. He enjoyed his first schooling under the Franciscan Fathers at Acqs. Such had been his progress in four years that a gentleman chose him as subpreceptor to his children, and he was thus enabled to continue his studies without being a burden to his parents.

quote bg
The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it.

About Us

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 in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, StVincent de Paul.

Walk for
Those in Need

Each year we help thousands of Sumner County residents. Most of the people who come to us are facing a temporary emergency resulting from a medical emergency, lost job, illness or other crisis. We investigate every claim and visit those we serve to make sure Saint Vincent de Paul funds are used prudently.
