Mission:  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 in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul by offering person-to-person service to those who are suffering and in need.

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.

Role in Heart to Pray:  Each day all of us pray for the strength to continue to serve the poor and those on the peripheries of our society, as Pope Francis encourages us.  We also pray for the individuals and families we serve.

Role in Heart to Serve  This was the first outreach ministry established in our parish and we continue to assist those in need in our parish and the community.

Role in Heart to Share:  Each day we share the generosity of all our donors and benefactors with our clients as our mission statement and guidelines dictate, keeping our principles of Charity and Justice as the balance.

Role in Heart to Witness:  Each day we meet clients and work with case workers and donors offering person-to-person service on the road of life and as we travel the path of our personal spiritual journey.
