The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is composed of men and women, known as Vincentians, who seek personal holiness through works of charity. They strive to act in the image of Jesus, do God’s will, and devote themselves to the service of the poor and suffering.
Vincentians dedicate themselves to those in need, share in spirituality, promote a life of prayer and reflection, and work together to bring the most aid and comfort they can to their neighbors. It is a community of action – transforming concern for those in need into concrete service and understanding.
The cornerstone of the Vincentian journey is the Home Visit – in which Vincentians meet with clients in their place of residence so that they may better understand their struggles and needs. By meeting face to face with their neighbors, Vincentians see the Face of Christ in those they are blessed to serve.
