Our Emeritus Vincentians

Thank you for your commitment

In 2016 the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria established a recognition program, Emeritus Vincentian, to honour and acknowledge long-serving members who are no longer able to actively participate in visitations, yet still wish to continue their involvement with us.

We acknowledge the contributions of the following Emeritus Vincentians for their work with the Society in responding to our friends in need.
