Within a few years, the original group of seven grew to 600, spreading to 15 other cities and towns in France, numbering more than 2,000 members.</p> <p>Twelve years later, in 1845, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul crossed the ocean to St. Louis, Missouri, where the first American conference was formed. To this day, St. Louis remains the Society’s national headquarters.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> <div style="text-align: center;"><a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-5141" alt="Valle loading the truck SVDP" src="×225.jpg" width="300" height="225" /></a></div>
