Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Person-to-person service to the needy and suffering

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a network of friends, inspired by the gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need. An international Catholic lay organization inspired by St. Vincent de Paul and founded by Blessed Frederic Ozanam, its members are united by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supporting gatherings, and adherence to a basic Rule. Vincentians come from every walk of life, striving to follow Christ in an effort to bring hope to our friends suffering in a hurting world.
