The mission statement of St Vincent de Paul Society in Australia is to deepen the Catholic faith of its members, to go out into our nation to heighten awareness of Jesus Christ.
We do this by sharing ourselves – who we are and what we have with the poor on a person to person basis. We seek to co-operate in shaping a more just and compassionate Australian community.
Our preferred option in this mission of service is to work with the poor in development, by respecting their dignity, sharing our hope, and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny.
- Visit and dedicate themselves to the poor, whose faith and courage teach Vincentians how to live
- Attend meetings of the conferences where shared Vincentian spirituality is a source of inspiration.
- Promote a life of prayer and reflection both at the individual and community level and share with their fellow members.
- Transform their concern into action and their compassion into practical and effective love.
