Our Identity

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and  men 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.

As a reflection of the whole family of God, 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.

Our Essential Elements

Holiness of Life

To bear witness to Christ and to His Church by showing that the failth of Christians inspires them to work for the good of humanity.


To bring together men and women of good will and to assist them by mutual example and true friendship in drawing nearer to the Divine Model by fulfilling His essential precept, namely, the love of God in the person of others.

Service to the Poor

To establish a personal contact between its members and those who suffer and to bring to the latter the most efficacious and charitable aid possible.
