This website collects and provides generally available public information about the mission of the Society of St. Vincent dePaul (SVdP), what it means to be Vincentian, and the good work SVdP does in the Anchorage area and across the country.


This website is operated independently of any SVdP Conference, Council or other organization. Until February, 2017 use of this site had been voluntarily donated to the Society of St. Vincent dePaul Holy Family Conference (located in Anchorage) and it thereby served as that Conference's website. Although you will find here some publicly-available information regarding that Conference, this website is no longer specifically associated or affiliated with the SVdP Holy Family Conference. Rather, this website presently is being maintained solely for the purpose of serving the needs of any SVdP Council that may be formed in the Anchorage area in the future.


For more information about the operational structure of the Society, and the differences between Conferences, Councils and the National Society, click on the "About" button on the left side of this page, and also go HERE.

The SVdP Ozanam Orientation was presented by the Formators from the North Sound Council, Seattle, to 23 people at the Holy Family Cathedral on July 23rd, 2016. The attendees included Existing Members, New Members, Prospective Members, and other interested Parties. While most were from Parishes in the Anchorage Area, attendees also came from Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Big Lake and St. Paul Parish in Juneau.
