Saint Vincent de Paul Society

Who we are

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international voluntary Catholic Christian organization. Members of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (or "Vincentians" ) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need. You can read about the Society by going on-line at www.svdpoc.org (Orange County) or www.svdpusa.org (National)
