The Society of St. Vincent de Paul adheres to a group of core values; these are the principles central to its Catholic character and ministry.

We believe...

  • In the dignity of the human person
  • In the identification of Jesus with the poor
  • In the preferential option for the poor
  • That Jesus is the Evangelizer and Servant of the poor
  • That growth in intimacy with Jesus is a lifelong process
  • That poverty of spirit is the primary beatitude
  • That our primary concern is charity and justice
  • That prayer is essential: personal and communal
  • In the virtue of humility: personal and corporate
  • In the virtue of charity, inside and outside the Society
  • In Divine Providence
  • In Friendship
  • In Community
  • In Simplicity
