Did you know?


St. Vincent de Paul's impact has been felt throughout the world for generations. One shining example is DePaul University , a private institution of higher education and research in Chicago, Illinois. It was founded by the Vincentians in 1898, and is named after the Society's 17th century French priest, who valued philanthropy.

Vincentians are volunteers from all backgrounds of life who help improve the quality of life for thousands of individuals through various acts of charity during the year. Locally, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's Council of Los Angeles has close to 2,000 Vincentians who serve the homeless and working poor in the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara.
