St. Vincent de Paul mission statement:

To develop community by providing services to our guests and by working to help all fulfill their potential. SVdP staff, volunteers, and those we serve accomplish this through the following actions and services:

  • Offer emergency relief and the opportunity to build relationships in an environment of comfort, healing, faith, and hope.
  • Advocate for the dignity of all by addressing the root causes of societal injustice.
  • Promote the spiritual growth of everyone involved in the ministry.

 

The Basilica's SVdP program received the Catholic Charities Board of Directors Award in 2011.
