The Rule of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul clearly conveys the importance of multicultural and diversity in several sections.
1.2 The Vincentian Vocation
The vocation of the Society's members, who are called Vincentians, is to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love. Members show their commitment through person-to person contact.
1.3 Any form of personal help.....
No work of charity is foreign to the Society. It includes any form of help that alleviates suffering or deprivation and promotes human dignity and personal integrity in all their dimensions.
1.4...to anyone in need
The Society serves those in need regardless of creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender or political opinions.
1.5 To Seek Out the Poor
Vincentians strive to seek out and find those in need and the forgotten, the victims of exclusion or adversity.
1.6 Adaptation to a Changing World
Faithful to the spirit of its founders, the Society constantly strives for renewal, adapting to changing world conditions. It seeks to be ever aware of the changes that occur in human society and the new types of poverty that may be identified or anticipated. It gives priority to the poorest of the poor and to those who are most rejected by society.
