Our Lady of Perpetual Help > St. Vincent de Paul Society

St. Vincent de Paul Society


Members of the Society (Vincentians) provide service to the poor and others in need, as a result of life's challenges. This ministry is about giving yourself and allows you to both answer God's call to service and to respond to needs within your immediate or wider community. Although home visitations have traditionally represented the core work of the members, Vincentians and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul continue to respond to new needs and realities. ("No work of charity is foreign to the Society", The Rule, Schema 1)
