  • What is the St. Vincent de Paul Society

    The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide Catholic organization of lay people, open to all who wish to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbors.

    St. Katherine Drexel is a Conference within St. Vincent de Paul Society serving the needy in Calvert County, Maryland.  Members of the St. Katherine Drexel Conference provide person-to-person service to help those in need, regardless of race, creed, gender or religion.

    The VISION is to see in those in need the face of Christ.  

    • The MISSION is to bring faith and hope alive through service to others, one neighbor at a time.
    • The GOALS are to live our faith by loving and serving individuals and families, so that no one is in need of the necessities of life.
