Society of St. Vincent de Paul Our Mother of Perpetual Help Conference
The fundamental elements of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are Friendship, Spirituality and Service. It is the aim of all Vincentians (members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul) to continually grow in these area. Membership is open to all individuals who desire to help those in need and want to follow the spirit of the founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and the Vincentian’s patron and namesake, St. Vincent de Paul.
The Our Mother of Perpetual Help Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference provides critical support to the residents within the boundaries of our parish (Oak Park, Ferndale, and Royal Oak Township). Through their hands-on charitable work they are a vital part of the community, offering food assistance, emergency support and relief services to help enhance the lives of the less fortunate in our area.
The Conference meets at 7:00pm on the first Monday of each month in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima Church.
