About


  • Learning to serve our neighbors living in poverty
  • Reflecting on our experiences of service
  • In the way of St. Vincent de Paul and those he inspired
  • Using online multimedia and downloadable resources

St. Vincent de Paul’s passion– love of the poor– is a popular inspiration to today’s Catholics wanting to make a difference.

Our resources are used by people who serve the marginalized of our society… to reflect, share, and connect with each other.
