Mission

St Vincent de Paul by Simon François de Tours

Frederic Ozanam founded the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in 1833. The mission of the Society is to live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, and joy.

We understand that poverty does not necessarily involve being in need of material goods.

Vincentians strive to address the root causes of poverty and injustice by acting as the voice of the poor.
