Disciples of St. Vincent de Paul

Mission Statement
Inspired by Gospel values, Vincentians join together to grow spiritually by offering person to person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

Their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing unites Vincentians in a society of charity, which is nourished by prayer, reflection, and mutually supportive gatherings.

Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. Vincentians collaborate with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its cause making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
