St. Vincent de Paul, a 17th century Catholic priest, inspired and organized his contemporaries to serve the poor and oppressed. In this spirit, we strive to develop leaders who will make a difference in their local communities and the larger world. We teach students about the challenges and causes of poverty, and we support service learning activities where our students reach out with compassion to serve people's basic needs. The larger university community is encouraged to study St. Vincent and continue his important work. The Vincentian mission provides purpose to our institution, and calls on us to strive for both excellence and humility.
Our mission in action:
Our Lady's of Angels Association
Inspired by the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul, Our Lady of Angels Association encourages its members and benefactors to support, through their prayers and donations, ministries funded by the Eastern Province of the Congregation of the Mission. Vincentian supported charities are meeting the needs of children, adults and families.
