Everything St. Vincent de Paul does is motivated by a sense of compassion for those struggling with poverty, loneliness, illness, family problems and many other difficulties. The Vincentian spirit inspires us to action, sustains our commitment and challenges us to become more like Christ. Every encounter with our fellow man is an opportunity to share our Vincentian spirit.
