The St Vincent de Paul conference at Our Lady of Grace was first convened in July 1945 and has continued ever since.
The work of the society has not changed over the years, in that the group work together, within the Parish, helping people in need.
We remember all the members who have, over these years, worked hard to bring comfort and help to many people. May they rest in peace.
