To serve the People of God in a spirit of heartfelt simplicity.
The purpose for which our Congregation was founded is the sanctification of its members and service to others.
The spirit of simplicity shown by loving-submission, charity, and mortification is the distinctive spirit which permeates our lives and all that we do as we strive to fulfill the mission entrusted to us by the Church.
And You are Christ's ~ Father Dubay, S.M.
Saint Vincent de Paul
The founder of our Congregation, Bishop John Zwijsen, was inspired by the spirituality of Saint Vincent. We see St. Vincent de Paul as an inspiring example of evangelical service. We are called to live and work in his spirit. Commitment to the poor was the road St. Vincent de Paul followed. He states: in the poor you find God.
