Inspired by Gospel values, Vincentians join together to grow spiritually by offering person to person services for those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent DePaul.
Vincentians bear witness to God's love by embracing all the works of charity and justice, seeking to relieve the needs of the poor and addressing the root causes of poverty.
Oral history indicates that the work of the St. Vincent dePaul Society at Mount Saint Peter Parish dates back to the late 1930's or early 1940's. The local council was formally aggregated with the International Society on September 5, 1958. In 2009, members formally changed the name of the ogranization at Mount Saint Peter Parish to the Disciples of Vincent dePaul.
There are 12 members.
