About Us

The St Vincent de Paul Society was founded by a 20-year old student named Frederic Ozanam in 1833. It was established by like-minded individuals who wished to put their faith into action. This compassionate outlook, enthusiasm and vision continues today across Australia, and throughout Tasmania. There are thousands of people who every day share their time, care for humanity and energy to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged people all around the State.
