The St. Stephen Benevolent Conference (SSBC) of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic lay organization that leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. SSBC members witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice and collaborating with others to offer material, spiritual, and advocacy assistance that will promote dignity and self-sufficiency. We meet regularly for prayer and reflection, mutual support, and adherence to a basic Rule to nourish the spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing.


Through the generous contributions of our parishioners and community, we are able to assist individuals and families in the Bentonville, Bella Vista, and Centerton areas with food and financial assistance. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us at ssbcpres@gmail.com and/or join us at our bi-weekly meetings.
