Like St. Vincent, people from every walk of life join the Vincentians to help the poor in St. Vincent de Paul Circle. The Circle seeks to respond effectively and compassionately to the needs of the hungry, the young, prisoners, the homeless and Hispanic/Latino immigrants.
Join the Circle through your gift and membership today! St. Vincent de Paul spent his life following Christ’s example and command to love and serve the poor. He called his companion priests and brothers, the Vincentians, to accompany him. “Let us serve the poor not only by prayer” and intention, but “by the sweat of our brows” he told them.
Today, that same call is heard and lived in the St. Vincent de Paul Circle. The Circle is complete when Vincentian priests, brothers, and their friends see Christ in the poor – the One who fills them with His Love.
The St. Vincent de Paul Fund is a part of the St. Vincent de Paul Circle.
This Fund unites supporters and the Fathers and Brothers of St. Vincent de Paul in doing what Jesus told all of us to do: Feed the hungry, teach those who seek, visit the prisoners, give shelter to the homeless and welcome the stranger.
