The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an International fraternal organisation of lay men and women who practice Christianity by helping people in need on a person to person basis. St. Joseph’s SVP Conference meet every Tuesday evening at 8.00pm for approximately 45 minutes. We begin the meeting with a prayer and a reading and then report on the visits we have made during the week to people in their homes or those in residential care or hospital. Every first Tuesday of the month we say the rosary for those who we serve.

We organise a programme of visits, talks and entertainment throughout the year for our senior parishioners. If you would like to join in our work as a full member, an auxiliary or as a friend then please contact the Parish Secretary using this form or by phone on (0191) 384 3810 alternatively call Janet Nichols  (St. Godric and St. Bede’s SVP) on (0191) 384 3992 or Fred Haywood (St. Joseph’s SVP) on (0191) 384 5843.
