In the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a spiritually based lay organization, which leads women and men to join together by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering

The essential elements of the Society are Spirituality, Friendship and Service.

Vincentians are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level and are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of sharing.

Organized locally, Vincentians embrace all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served.
