As long as you did it to one of these, my least of brethren, you did it to me.
The mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is very simple. It is to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person support and service to anyone who is in need. It’s the helping hand that puts a meal on a family’s table and makes sure the lights and heat stay on. It’s the generosity that sees to it that men, women and children are clothed, that they have a bed – or needed furniture – or just a place to sleep. It’s reaching out to those without hope and giving them the gift of a better tomorrow.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic lay organization united in our vision of offering individual help to those in need and in addressing the causes of charity and justice. Our members are nourished by prayer, reflections and supportive gatherings as they walk in the footsteps of the One who comforted the sick, healed the lepers, washed the feet of strangers and helped the Samaritan. We see the face of God in every human — of every condition — who can benefit from our aid.
Serving with no distinction to religious affiliation and offering individual help to every ethnic and cultural group.
