The Official SSVP Logo

  • The fish is the symbol of Christianity and, in this case, represents the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.

  • The eye of the fish is the vigilant eye of God seeking to help the poor in our midst. 

  • The crossing at the tail or the tie-knot represents unity and oneness among members and also the union with the poor. 

  • The circle bounding the logo signifies the global or worldwide stature of the SSVP, an international Society.

  • The words serviens in spe mean to serve in hope, the hope that comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ.
