The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a global Catholic organization whose members grow in spirituality by assisting the poor.

At the parish level, St. Vincent de Paul is called a conference. Like many parishes in the Diocese of Orange, St. Pius V includes such a conference.

Our purpose is to fulfill the two great commandments – love of God and love of neighbor.

We seek to grow spiritually in our meetings and through prayer and sharing of our faith. We develop a bond or community of faith with our fellow Vincentians. We seek out God’s needy and help where we can, usually with food, toiletries, gift cards, and referrals to other agencies. Sometimes great resources are needed – sometimes we can do no more than listen and comfort. We respond to the opportunities God presents to us. In coming closer to those in need, you are coming closer to God.

The St. Pius V conference holds two meetings a month, limited to one hour of prayer and discussion. Most of our 35 members make home visits, though there are other ways to serve.

If you know someone in the Buena Park area who needs help, have them call us and one of our members will return the call.

If you wish to learn more about us, leave a message for Don Westenhaver.
