Mission and Text of 2013 SVDP Pulpit Talk Print


 Mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering. 

Members form an international society of friends united by a spirit of charity. 

We are nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings, and adherence to a basic rule. 

Keenly aware that poverty, suffering, and loneliness are present to millions in our communities, we embrace all works of charity and justice.
