Shrewsbury ... shall be a name 'as stirring to the heart as the glories we have lost'

Blessed John Henry Newman, 1852

Catholic Associations

SVP

The SVP Society is an international organisation operating in 149 countries with 700,000 members. The Society’s aim is to enable members to practise their Christianity through helping the needy in their neighbourhood. Our Society also helps the needy overseas by transferring aid to Vincentians in poor countries.

In England and Wales the SVP gives support to the homeless, sick and lonely; it also runs furniture stores and charity shops. As an ecumenical organisation with Catholic ethos, we cooperate with other bodies working in the same field.

If you can spare some time for this important work please contact your parish priest for further details.
