The Society of St. Vincent de Paul - 11 Park St., Monaghan, Local Helpline Number - 087 7744438. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a christian voluntary organisation, working with poor and disadvantaged people. Inspired by one of the principal founders, Frederic Ozanam and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul, we seek to respond to the call every Christian receives to bring the love of Christ to serve in the spirit of the Gospel Message: "I was hungry and you gave me to eat". (Mt. 25). No work of charity is foreign to St. Vincent de Paul and we are involved in a diverse range of activities characterised by support and friendship, promoting self-sufficiency and working for social justice.

The Conference of St. Macartan in Monaghan consists of 11 full Conference Members who are from various backgrounds from within the local community.

Our main activity is visitation and our aim is to promote social justice and to try to help all members of our community who may be in need. We help by giving financial assistance with fuel bills, ESB, Eircom, rent etc whilst working in close association with all Departments of Social Welfare, HSE, Citizens Advice and in particular MABS. In addition, we provide small education grants.

We also visit the elderly or lonely at home and also the sick in hospitals and nursing homes.

The Conference also runs a small charity shop at 11 Park St. with the help of volunteers. The shop is open on a Saturday  between the hours of 12 noon and 4p.m. (times are always under review).

The society is always very grateful to receive good quality clothes, bric & brac and unwanted gifts. However, we are no longer able to accept any furniture or electrical goods of any description for Health & Safety reasons.

We are always looking out for new conference members to help in this very important work and if you have a minimum of 3 hours free time each week we would be very pleased to hear from you.

To become a full member of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul contact your local conference who will then provide you with a SVP Application Pack.

The SVP is committed to the safety and welfare of those whom we assist (children, families and vulnerable adults) and also our members and staff. Carefully following our requirement and selection process is one way of ensuring this safety.
