Our Mission

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles, is part of a worldwide organization of lay Catholic men and women who are committed to live and grow in their Christian faith through prayer and personal involvement in charitable works.  The Society’s mission is accomplished through parish and community-based groups called Conferences (volunteers) and programs called “Special Works.”  The Society’s work includes any actions that promote the dignity of the person, alleviate suffering and distress, while correcting the conditions that cause them.

“No Act of Charity is Foreign to the Society.”
