St Vincent De Paul Society

Becoming a priest, to St Vincent de Paul, meant escaping his family's poverty into a life of clerical ease. His first 10 years of priesthood were spent basking in his newfound comfort and privileges. Then a great change came over him and he eventually dedicated the rest of his life to the service of the poor. He organized groups of lay people for charitable work, and a society of priests who would train the clergy as well as do missionary work in rural areas. Today his name is synonymous with Catholic charity throughout the world.

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, leads men and women to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. 

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.
