MISSION STATEMENT of St Vincent de Paul
The Mission of the St. Vincent De Paul Society (SVDP) in Australia is to deepen the catholic faith of its members and 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 cooperate in shaping a more just and compassionate Australian community and to share our resources with our twinned (partner) countries.
Our preferred option in this mission of service is to work with the poor in development, by respecting their dignity, sharing their hope and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny.
The mission is achieved through the formation of local conferences within different localities which enable direct contact with people in need.
