Jesus has given us a law to love our neighbours as we love ourselves. In the present scenario, person has become so selfish who forges to think about the other person. We worry only about ourselves; we don’t have time to think about others. We are not interested in others.  We think that I need to become good and rich should have high position. Everyone should respect me; we should shine at all the forum possible etc. When we attain all these we keep aside and forget the poor, marginalised and weakest people of society. There are many sick, orphan, poor people with several difficulties exist in our society. In our Church we have very nice forum in the form of St Vincent De Paul to serve the poor and marginalised.

St Vincent De Paul association is founded in the year 1833 at Paris of France by a 30 year Youngman, Fredrick Ozanam. Today this association has spread too many corners of the world. This association silently helps the needy of the society and satisfies their needs.

In our Parish St Vincent De Paul association started on 11 – 12 – 1988 with the able direction of Rev. Fr Xavier Gomes and by the able guidance by Brother Philip Neri Pereira. There were 14 enthusiastic members. At the beginning year’s association adopted five poor families to look after their basic needs. Every week association gives rice to these families. This constant job has brought contentment in the association, now the association is able to reach out to more needy and marginalised in the parish. It has also broadened its shoulders even towards non – Christian families.

ince 1998 almost for 23 years we received wonderful support from Rev. Fr Francis Xavier Gomes, Rev. Fr Antony Lewis, Rev. Fr Isidore Monteiro, Rev. Fr Lawrence martis, Rev. Fr Micheal Santhumayor, Rev. Fr Anil D’Souza and at present by Rev. Fr Mark Valder. By their able direction we could able to reach to the excellence.

During the period of Brothers Philip Neri Periera, Lawrence Sequeira, Ambrose Serrao, Rexon Miranda and others who showed efficient leadership to carry out the mission. Presently Brother takes lead in fulfilling this task.
