Conference of Our Lady of Visitation
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The society of St. Vincent de Paul is a lay organization in the church. It has conferences at parish levels. In Our Lady of Visitation Church parish, Nerul, it is headed by Sr. Clementine as President. It has 12 members and is part of the Central Council of Bombay at the diocese level which is connected with Central Council of India functioning under the International Council. The primary motto of the SSVP is to find the Lord in service of the poor. The members meet compulsorily once a week, discuss the needs of beneficiaries and visit them in their homes to ascertain the genuineness; thereby providing ration, education and medical aid to those desperate due to harshness of life. The SSVP functions with the donations given by generous individuals the account of which is scrupulously maintained and submitted not only to the higher Councils but also to the Charity Commissioner annually.
The Vincentians of Our Lady of Visitation Conference, Nerul are committed to complete faith in the Lord serving the needy with a new vigour at this time of Pandemic, no matter what, to be available to those given under our care along with the priests of our parish and all generous helping hands.
Our devotion to the Lord is the vertical wood of the cross and our adopted families as the horizontal, we welcome those wanting to be part of this international endeavour.
