The congregation is a community of priests and brothers founded by St. Vincent de Paul in Paris in 1625. They and the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul (founded 1633) constitute the "double family" of St. Vincent under one superior general. The aims of the congregation are the preaching of missions to the poor; training of ecclesiastics; foreign missions; and administering and promoting Catholic education. The community was formally confirmed by Urban VIII in 1632 and came to be known as Lazarists, from the priory of St.-Lazare, which was Vincent's headquarters in Paris. Vincentian vows are simple but private.
