The St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) is a Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to making a difference to anyone in need.  The vocation of its members is to follow Christ through service to others and to bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love.  Members show their commitment through person-to-person contact, visiting in peoples' homes, hospitals, or residential homes, offering any kind of help that alleviates suffering or deprivation and promotes human dignity, regardless of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender,

The SVP in Welwyn Garden City meets once a fortnight in St. Bonaventure's parish hall.  To find out more about SVP visit or contact Janet Lewis (telephone number 01707 326456).
