“Charity is the cement that unites communities to God and individuals to each other, so that he who contributes to the union of hearts in a community binds it indissolubly to God.” – St. Vincent de Paul
Inspired by Gospel Values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a lay Catholic organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person to person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Ozanam and patron St. Vincent de Paul.
