Who are we?

The “Company of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul, Servants of the Poor” founded by Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac is an international community.

Daughters of Charity are called to serve Jesus Christ in the person of those who are poor and marginalized, with a spirit of humility, simplicity and charity.  Motivated by the love of Christ and sustained by a deep prayer life, we live together in community, supporting one another in our common mission of service, service which addresses the person in all human and spiritual dimensions.

Recognized in the Church as a Society of Apostolic Life, the Company is currently present in 96 countries and on every continent.

We live and work in places of social priority:  hospitals, homes for troubled children, schools, day centers for the homeless, those with dependencies or handicapping conditions.  We would like to be available and ready to serve everywhere where there is need and where we can bring help and support, according to our strengths and possibilities, in collaboration with others in the Church and divers groups and organizations.
