The work of the Society
We are called to alleviate suffering and its causes, serving everyone regardless of race, creed, gender, opinion or age. As Vincentians, we understand that poverty does not necessarily involve being in need of material goods.
The Society’s main service throughout the world is home visits to people who are in need.
The Society in Canada
There are Society conferences in all provinces and the N.W. Territories and the Nunavut in Canada. These conferences can be found in parishes, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces.
