Mission:  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 in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul by offering person-to-person service to those who are suffering and in need.

As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. 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.

Organized locally, Vincentians 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, Vincentians see the face of Christ.

The St. Benedict Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides financial and other assistance to our neighbors in need. Most of the assistance goes toward utilities, rent, and mortgages. Our territory includes Mt. Pleasant north of Six Mile Road; Awendaw; McClellanville; and Huger, east of Hwy. 41.

The Conference meets in the evening every second Tuesday of the month in church. Time commitment varies depending on the function of the member. Those who handle the Helpline for a week do so approximately once every two months. Those who make home visits are needed from once a week to once a month depending on how many calls we receive.
