Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP)

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) was initially formed in Paris, France in 1833 by the Blessed Fr. Frédéric Ozanam and his companions.

It is an international Christian Organisation, made up of volunteers, which is dedicated to tackling poverty and helping the disadvantaged members of society. It does this by providing practical assistance to those in need. This assistance is irrespective of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender.

The SVP is a lay organisation and has been active in England since 1844 where it was placed under the Patronage of St. Vincent de Paul.

The Society is inspired by the thoughts and words of St Vincent de Paul and seeks to help those who are suffering poverty in whatever form. This is done in the spirit of Justice and Charity.

In the parish of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) will work in conjunction with the Ladies of Charity (AIC).

New members are always welcome.

If you are interested to become a member please contact the Parish Office by phone 020 7639 0947 or via email peckham@rcaos.org.uk).

The Vision of the SVP Peckham;

This vision is inspired by the message of Christ:

"The second is this: You must Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these" . Mark, 12:31

It is for individuals and families who are in need to have hope, together with a sense of dignity, worth, well-being and peace of mind.

The Mission of the SVP Peckham;

Their mission is to seek and find those who are in need, to help them in a spirit of justice, and to tackle the causes of poverty where they can.

The SVP meet on Monday evenings at 7.30 p.m. on a fortnightly basis.

The next meeting will take place on Monday, 2nd November, 2015 and then fortnightly from thence onwards.
