Historical Note

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul was founded by Frederic Ozanam on April 23rd, 1833. The organization however was started a few years before by Ozanam and a some of his friends at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he was studying law at the time. The roots of the society go back to a series of meetings known as the Conference of History. At one of these meetings Ozanam was questioned by a student regarding what good the Catholic Church was doing in the present. After this, Ozanam, with the assistance of Sister Rosalie Rendu, a Sister for the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, helped found the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. She became a mentor for Ozanam and early members of the society by training them in social justice and caring for the sick and the poor.

The society was named after St. Vincent de Paul because of his commitment to charity and the care of the poor during the first half of the seventeenth century. He was the founder of the Confraternities of Charity and the Ladies of Charity, the order Sister Rendu was a member of. Frederic would contribute greatly to the first twenty years of the society with his writings on social justice that became the modern encyclical on social justice. Ozanam died in 1853 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II on August 22, 1997 in Paris. His mentor Sister Rosalie Rendu died February 7, 1856 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul came to the United States in 1845, being first established in St. Louis, Missouri, by Rev. John Timon who was a Vincentian priest. The society was founded in the Basilica of St. Louis. Father Timon brought copies of the rule of the order from Dublin, Ireland, and began to discuss with local Catholics the importance of working with the poor. The then Bishop of St. Louis, Peter Richard Kenrick, asked Rev. Ambrose Heim to establish the society in St. Louis and for him to be its first spiritual advisor. The first meeting with its lay members took place on November 20, 1845. The first President was Dr. Moses Linton. The council was formally recognized by the International Council on February 2, 1846 in Paris.

The society grew greatly during the nineteenth century with diocesan councils being established across the nation. In 1853 New York City's first Society of St. Vincent de Paul Council was founded. During the twentieth century the society continued to dedicate itself to helping the poor but also aiding the poor in war ravaged areas with its war relief programs. The National Council in the United States also began having Councils sponsoring foreign Councils in third world countries with its twinning program during the 1970s-1990s. Long serving executive secretary Dudley Baker served thirty years, 1955-1985, and helped establish many modern charitable organizations and brought about the modernization of the society in America, as well as aiding several presidents. Lastly, the society in America has focused on disaster relief throughout its history and put a greater emphasis on this recently, especially through the training of Rev. Ronald Ramson and the National Council's Charity Seminars.

Lastly, the organization of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is organized by five levels. The first level is the International Council in Paris, France that oversees the organization throughout the world. The second level is the National Council, which oversees each individual country's society. The United States National Council is located in St. Louis, Missouri. The third level is the Diocesan Councils, which there are 51 in the United States. These are councils mainly oversea individual Councils in the society. The fourth level is the District council which oversees all the individual conferences throughout the United States, there are 392 in this country. Lastly, there are 4,360 conferences in the United States. Overall, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has continued to dedicate itself to charitable works for the poor throughout the United States and the world.
