Who We Are
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is a ‘lay Catholic organization whose mission is to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice and joy. As Vincentians, our Mission is to see Christ in anyone who suffers, come together as a family, have personal contact with the poor and help in all possible ways.’
Our volunteers seek people in need, wherever they live - in their homes, on the street, in shelters, in hospital or in prison. The activity of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is always based on love of neighbor in the local community and volunteers work in their own area to respond to these needs.
"My command is this: Love one another as I have loved you"
How We Help
Our Lady of Lourdes Conference serves the area from the bridge all the way to Peachland, where our volunteers (called Vincentians) seek to help the poor wherever they live. Our OLOL conference, in collaboration with other charities, helps hundreds of families, relying completely on the donations from our Parish and other generous individuals and organizations to carry out our work.
Ways our conference serves our community:
- bringing food hampers to those in urgent need
- home visits (before the restrictions)
- emergency rent assistance through our "Invincible Housing project"
- educational support (the purchase of school supplies)
- twinning with Our Lady of Perpetual Help council in Columbia
- donations to Ozanam House in Kelowna
- A Christmas party and gifts for families
If you feel the call to join our Vincentian family or have any questions, please call
