WHO WE ARE
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) – Diocesan Council of Biloxi, MS - is a nonprofit, Catholic lay organization that provides temporary assistance for basic needs, assisting the housed and the homeless with dignity and compassion. We serve those in need within the parish boundaries of the twenty (20) conferences operating in the Diocese of Biloxi. SVDP assists those in need regardless of race, creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender or political affiliations.
The Story of Our Founding
The Vincentian Family marks its beginning in 1617, when St. Vincent de Paul, inspired by receiving the confession of a poor farmer, founded the Congregation of the Mission.
Move to the USA
Twelve years later, in 1845, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul crossed the ocean to St. Louis, Missouri, where the first American conference was formed.
The Diocesan Council of Biloxi
The Diocesan Council of Biloxi has 20 Conferences in Southern Mississippi, working diligently to serve those in need and foster a spirit of compassion and solidarity.
