In the evening of April 23, 1833, Frédéric Ozanam and five other students met in the office of Mr. Emmanuel Bailly; that evening, the “Conference of Charity” was born. They asked Sister Rosalie Rendu, a Daughter of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul to teach them how to minister to the poor with love and respect.  The Society’s logo incarnates this.
