The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers women and men the opportunity for spiritual formation through person-to-person service to the poor and needy. Vincentians seek out the poor and forgotten regardless of religion, race, or national origin. The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul seeks long term solutions for the poor. Saint Vincent de Paul is as an advocate for legislative and social change to the injustice that afflicts those without a voice, the suffering, the helpless, and the forgotten. www.voiceofthepoor.org
The mission of Saint Vincent de Paul reaches out to 142 countries on five continents. In the U.S. there are currently 172,000 vincentians serving 4600 communities. In the 2010/2011 fiscal year Saint Vincent de Paul provided over $300 million in direct aid and over $100 million of in kind goods and services to 15 million people across our country.
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 our five parish based conferences, food pantry, and thrift store provided over one-half million dollars of assistance to hundreds of suffering and deprived families right here in the treasure coast. Thank you for helping us help others!
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. As a reflection of the whole family of God, Members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule. Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing 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 because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
