Our Mission

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is a lay Catholic organization whose mission is to live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice and joy.

As Vincentians, we:
    • see Christ in anyone who suffers;
    • come together as a family;
    • have personal contact with the poor;
    • help in all possible ways.

Our logo

  • The fish is the symbol of Christianity and, in this case, represents the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.

  • The eye of the fish is the vigilant eye of God seeking to help the poor in our midst.   

  • The crossing at the tail or the tie-knot represents unity and oneness among members and also the union with the poor.

  • The circle bounding the logo signifies the global or worldwide stature  of the SSVP, an international Society

  • The words serviens in spe mean to serve in hope, the hope that comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ

We welcome those interested in becoming a volunteer. If you would like to be a part of our organization, please contact the conference in your area.
