On Feb. 18th 1967 thirty students and professors from Duquesne University in Pennsylvania went on a spiritual retreat which reflected on the power of the Holy Spirit in the early Church. They experienced the Holy Spirit becoming more active within their lives as they began to experience the charisms, the gifts of the Spirit, which are described in 1 Corinthians chapters 12, 13, and 14 and the Acts of the Apostles! As a result they began to group together in prayer meetings and prayer groups and share their experience with others. This experience has been called the “Release of the Spirit”.

Today more than 120 million Catholics have claimed to have been touched by the Holy Spirit in this way and have discovered a deeper prayer life, a deeper appreciation of the sacraments of the church and scripture reading has become more alive in their lives. They have also discovered a new zeal for their faith and a desire to serve the Lord Jesus especially in His Church and in the community! The Catholic Church has embraced and offered its guidance to this movement. The Popes from Pope Paul VI to Pope John Paul II have offered encouragement to this Renewal Movement.

The Cursillo method aims at helping to transform, in a Christian way, the environments where people live and work through the involvement of “new men and women” who have become such from their encounter with Christ. This is a goal of the three day “little course” on Christianity; in which a team of priests and lay people, supported by the prayer and sacrifices of the movement’s other members, communicated the fundamental truths of the Christian faith in an especially “living way.”

Pope John Paul II, July 29, 2000

Members of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (or “Vincentians” ) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential precept of the Society’s work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless. Some 12 million persons are helped annually by Vincentians in the United States.
