We Are Catholic

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is a Roman Catholic international voluntary organization, founded in 1833 for the sanctification of its members by personal service to the poor.

Inspired by the values of the Gospel, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul, by offering person-to-person service to those who are suffering and in need.
