DAUGHTERS OF CHARITY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul are a worldwide Society of Apostolic Life called to
serve Jesus Christ in the person of the poor and the marginalized. Motivated by the love of Christ and strengthened by a deep prayer life, we live and pray in community, supporting each other in our common mission of service. Like women in other religious communities, we make vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. What distinguishes us, however, is a fourth vow, service of the poor. Another distinction is that Daughters of Charity renew vows every year on the Feast of the Annunciation, which permits us to choose again our commitment to our God and to the poor. Our Ministries include education, spirituality, health care, social ministry, the creative arts, pastoral ministry, advocacy for change and others. We are an international community of over 18,800 women in more than 90 countries throughout the world, including the United States. As needs change, so do our services. Our mission calls us to be innovative and inventive, collaborative and inclusive. In whatever we do, we strive to perform our service in imitation of Jesus Christ.
