Society Of St. Vincent de Paul, Archdiocesan Council of St. Louis, Northwest District
The Northwest District includes 18 St. Vincent de Paul Conferences spread over three counties (St. Charles, Lincoln & Warren). Conferences are organized locally (usually with a Catholic Church), where Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served, because in them Vincentians see the face of Christ.
