The Society of St. Vincent dePaul in Naples operates under “The Rule of the Society” that gives and controls powers within our organization.
The Council operates with a budget of over $2.5 million. Thus it is necessary that the conferences prayerfully make decisions that will have a major effect on how SVdP of Naples ultimately helps the needy.
The Council is directed by a Board of Directors which is composed of a President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, and Treasurer plus the presidents of each of the eight conferences.
The conferences are affiliated with the parishes in Naples in name and in spirit, however the conferences operate independently of the parish. The eight conferences and the year they joined the council are:
St. Agnes 2009 St. John the Evangelist 1991
St. Ann 1964 San Marco 1981
St. Elizabeth Seton 1986 St. Peter the Apostle 1981
St. Finnbarr 2011 St. William 1981
Conferences work together in prayerful consensus as a council, but operate independently of each other. By reading the individual description of each (under the “Conferences” header) you can see that conferences may have different projects or ways of helping those in need. Yet, all conferences are dedicated to the mission of the Society.
Please see the drop down box under the “Conferences” sub-header for a description of each conference.
