Mission Statement

Inspired by Gospel values, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a Catholic lay organization, 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, Venerable Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

As a reflection of the whole family, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings, and adherence to a basic Rule.

Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served, because in them Vincentians see the face of Christ.
