SVdP founder Blessed Frederic Ozanam's quote explains Vincentian's mission
Throughout the year, more than 2,000 'Vincentian' volunteers from the Society's Council of Los Angeles exhibit their Christian love by helping others in need. This group includes professionals, retirees and students who choose to serve God by making a difference for children, women and men in the counties of L.A., Ventura and San Barbara.
With so much going on in today's world, why choose this mission? Perhaps St. Vincent de Paul's founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, said it best with this simple quote:
"Christianity is not about ideas but about deeds inspired by love."
Thank you to the Council's Vincentians for your continued and tireless efforts in improving the quality of life for many of our brothers and sisters in need.
