Mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Print

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society leads women and men 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.
