The St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) Conference at Holy Cross Church is a friendly group who work together to befriend and visit the elderly, the housebound and the sick in their own homes, residential homes or in hospital. We give practical help, including lifts to Mass, to appointments and shopping. In addition, we celebrate Mass for the sick and organise a Christmas lunch for those we visit.

Part of an international organisation, conferences are often “twinned” with SVP conferences in the developing world. At Holy Cross Church we are “twinned” with three SVP conferences in India who are special to us and we are joined to them by prayer, correspondence and financial help.

We meet fortnightly in the summer, at the Holy Cross Pastoral Centre at 7.00pm. In winter, we meet at 2.00pm at Bradgate Road, Bedford.
