Our Mission.

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic lay organisation inspired by the Gospels of Jesus Christ. This is a ground-roots organisation whose members and volunteers have been helping countless families and individuals for more than 150 years.

Vincentians work in a caring and practical manner to promote human dignity and justice through personal contact with those in need, hence the motto, People Helping People.

Our mission is to help people in crisis, comforting them and assuring them that their burdens are not meant to be carried alone.

Our Vision.

We strive to provide person-to-person practical and effective help to those in need - sharing their burdens and joys, sowing seeds of hope and promoting self-sufficiency.

Our Values.

  • Generosity

  • Integrity

  • Compassion

  • Responsiveness

  • Advocacy

  • Commitment


The Society does not seek publicity or recognition for itself. The work we do in helping others is confidential, the dignity of those we work with is paramount. The Vincentian way is service to others without fuss or fanfare.
