Since being founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam and a group of friends, home visits have been at the core and heart of the work of SSVP members. The SSVP always works hard to respond to changing needs and has now established ‘Special works’, which provide one particular service.
The SSVP is committed to helping the poor and those in need in any way we can. This help can take many forms, from helping individuals and families in our own community, feeding and clothing the homeless in cities and assisting those who need our help in areas of great need around the world. SSVP members respond to the needs that they see in the best way that they can. Sometimes this takes the form of addressing a particular need, we would call this a ‘special work’.
New members are most welcome. If you are interested please contact Fr. Gregory, or Charlie Welsh.
