The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is an international, lay Catholic, service organization dedicated to helping anyone in need. Our mission is to live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, and joy.
The fish is the symbol of Christianity and, in this case, represents the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
The eye of the fish is the vigilant eye of God seeking to help the poor in our midst.
The crossing at the tail or the tie-knot represents unity and oneness among members and also the union with the poor.
The circle bounding the logo signifies the global or worldwide stature of the SSVP, an international Society.
The words “serviens in spe” mean to “serve in hope”, the hope that comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Mission of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul implies that, as Vincentians we:
• see Christ in anyone who suffers
• come together as a family
• have personal contact with the poor
• help in all possible ways
