Our Mission

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide Christian community. It was founded in Paris in 1833 by a group of Catholic laypersons. One of the most notable among them is Blessed Frederic Ozanam. Members of the Society are called “Vincentians.” Their vocation is to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love. Members show their commitment through person-to-person contact. The Conference is the local group of Vincentians who meet to mutually support each other in friendship as they seek to love God and serve the needy.

“…I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God.” –Galatians 2:20
