WHO WE ARE

One of the oldest and most effective charities in the world, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) is a Catholic lay organization of more 700,000 men and women (known as Vincentians) throughout the world who voluntarily join together to grow spiritually and offer person-to-person service to the needy and those living in poverty in 149 countries on five continents. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing.

Organized locally throughout the Diocese of Shreveport, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. In 2014, Vincentians throughout North Louisiana served almost 20,000 people in need through over 3,000 home visits, hospital visits, prison visits, numerous food pantries and a free pharmacy – accumulating more than 31,000 hours of dedicated service to those in need.

Our Mission

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering.

Our Vision

As a reflection of the whole family of God, Members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level.

Our Members

Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.

Our Organization

Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
