How Mother Teresa Conference started.

The founding members of the Society gathered together and called themselves the Conference of Charity. The term conference has been an integral part of the vocabulary of the Society ever since.

Vincentians, within the limits of a parish, a school, a store, a workplace,etc., join together to form a conference. The conference provides an environment in which they develop and nurture a common spiritual life and where they grow in their closeness to the Lord as they encounter Him in the poor.

In a conference, objectives and activities are planned, developed and carried out to help the poor.

The main role of a conference is to group together Christians desirous of pursuing the Society's mission. A conference is a gathering of people similarly motivated to serve Christ by serving the poor. Working within the conference, members can nourish and renew their faith, and sustain each other through prayer so that each member will grow closer to God.

Mother Teresa Conference is a non profit group that raises funds to help the poor of our community. We support St. Vincent Men's Shelter, volunteer and provide a lunch for the poor every fifth week, volunteer at the food bank, help families in need when referred to us and any other referrals as needed.
