Introducing ‘Mission & Legacy’: a Micro Course for Mission Formation

The Mission & Formation team has a new micro-course for our Members. This is one-hour session unpacks the mission and values of the Society, Vincentian Spirituality, and Catholic Social Teaching.  

The National Council’s strategic plan highlights increasing Vincentian Spirituality as a core objective and states, “The Society is a Catholic lay organisation that embeds Catholic Social Teaching within all our good works and responses to poverty in the modern world”.  

Our local embodiment of Vincentian Spirituality is also in the strategy in the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW. To live out our mission, “We are committed to those people who live on the margins of our community and are guided by Catholic social principles of dignity of the human person and solidarity”.  

This is one way the Society support our Members, articulated in the Rule: “It is essential that the Society continually promote the formation and training of its members… in order to deepen their knowledge of the Society and their spirituality, improve the sensitivity, quality and efficiency of their service”. (The Rule 3.12) 

Our Mission & Legacy Micro Course is designed for Central Councils and Regional Councils as part of our suite of formation programs for all Members. Regional and Central Council Presidents can contact the Mission Team for further information at
