How to Start a Conference

We are always in need of new Conferences which are the “grass roots” of Vincentian organization. If you are interested in starting a Conference within your parish here are some basic steps to take:

Ask the priest/parish council and others to personally support the start-up of a Conference and to invite prospective members to join.
Contact the Archdiocesan Council of Oklahoma City to schedule an “Invitation to Serve.” Email us at

Conferences meet at least twice a month. Current Vincentians will be available to assist the new Conference until assistance is no longer required. Contact us for questions about the process and assistance in establishing a new conference.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me … Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:34-40
