St Vincent DePaul Society

Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (or ““Vincentians””) are men and women who strive to 
grow spiritually by offering person to person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. 
Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy,
some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, 
talent and treasure) are to be sharing with our brothers and sisters in need.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person to 
person basis. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. This 
aid may take the form of intervention, consultation or often through direct dollar or in-kind 
service. An essential precept of the Society’’s work is to provide help while conscientiously 
maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society recognizes that 
it must assume , also a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless. Some 12 
million persons are helped annually by Vincentians in the United States.

St. Vincent de Paul

St. Vincent de Paul was born at Pouy, France on April 24, 1581. He was ordained a priest on September 23, 1600. Vincent devoted himself entirely to the alleviation of the sufferings of the poor, and to that purpose established the Confraternities of Charity, later known as the Ladies of Charity, in 1617. In 1625 he founded the Congregation of the Mission, his community of priests and brothers. With Louise de Marillac, he co-founded the Daughters of Charity in 1633. Vincent died in Paris on September 27, 1660 and was canonized in 1737. Pope Leo XIII declared him patron saint of all works of charity.
