The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

"IF THOU HAVE MUCH, GIVE ABUNDANTLY; IF THOU HAVE LITTLE, TAKE CARE EVEN SO TO BESTOW WILLINGLY A LITTLE."
St. Jude's Conference, Kalpetta

Christ said : " You always have the poor with you" (Mt. 26 - 11). The Vincentian is at their service. He does not judge, he is available, as his time and resources permit.

Praise the Lord!!

Welcome to the humble web page of St. Judeís conference, Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This conference is functioning in association with St. Vincentís Forane Church, Kalpetta, Wynad Dt; Kerala, India.

Aim : Help the needy people. No work of charity is foreign to the Society. Assistance is essentially local. It is adapted according to the particular needs, places, and circumstances. Vincentians seek through prayer, meditation on scriptures and Church teachings, through their daily lives and in their relationship with those in need, to bear witness to the love of Christ. The Society does not attempt to convert the needy to Catholicism, nor does it limit its aid to Catholics. Vincentians, therefore strive to foster, to develop, and to favour all means by which the fundamental virtues of faith and charity can be kept alive within us and around us.

As you may be aware, Wynad is the remotest district of Kerala and most of the people are below poverty line. People migrated from different parts of the state in 1950s. Almost all are farmers and their crops depending up on monsoon and other changes in climate. The basic work of the society is visiting and relief the poor in their own homes. The society encourages and undertakes self - help and other welfare projects for the betterment and rehabilitation of the poor.

This page is to serve as an introduction and a small attempt to make you aware of the existence of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, here in Kalpetta.
