A BIT ABOUT US
The St Vincent de Paul Society is a lay Catholic organization that aspires to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and by working to shape a more just and compassionate society.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
When we speak about social justice we go to the heart of what the St Vincent de Paul Society stands for.
We are called, as Vincentians, to feed, clothe, house and assist our brothers and sisters who are forced onto the margins of society.
We are also called to ask why they are left out and pushed out?
We follow the teachings of the Scriptures:
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, protect the rights of those who are helpless. Speak out and pronounce a sentence of justice, defend the cause of the wretched and the poor.”
ASSISTANCE FOR THE THOSE IN NEED
“What can we do? … We can offer what little we have. We certainly have a few hours of time, some talent, some expertise.” - Pope Francis (July 26, 2015)
