Conference Life

Members of the Society traditionally gather in communities called “Conferences” which meet weekly, or at least twice a month. This is to affirm the importance of the spiritual and social dimensions of Vincentians coming together as a community of faith and love, prayer and action.  Rule: Part III, Statute 5

Successful Conferences:

  • Take initiative and try new things

  • Have working ties in the neighborhood and community

  • Participate in their District and Diocesan Councils

  • Do not hoard for a rainy day but rather trust God’s providence!

In Memoriam​

As a faith community, we honor and remember our deceased Vincentians, as being among our communion of saints.  We include them in our prayers and services throughout the year, but especially on November 2 (All Souls Day) and throughout the month of November.

Conference presidents are responsible to inform the Council of the deaths of members and associates and to assure that conference records, including the Memorial Roll, are updated. Conference presidents should coordinate with the conference spiritual advisor to provide appropriate comfort the family during times of loss.


If friends and family wish to remember someone through a Memorial Gift, such a gift may be made to the local conference or the Council.  Please consider St. Vincent de Paul in your estate planning. Thank you.
