The patron of De Paul College is Saint Vincent De Paul (1581-1660) who labored for the spiritual and material transformation of the people and society. Through organized works of service and political and societal interventions, he influenced public policy making based on social justice and social inclusiveness. As a spiritual reformer, Vincent conducted discourses to awaken the spiritual dimension of the people and society. Vincents social consciousness prompted him to work for the development of the society, especially the poor and the marginalized.
To sustain these spiritual and social development projects, Vincent organized these services with like-minded people and a well-established system and human network.
