It is rare to find a reasonably sized parish in Canada that does not have an active Society of St. Vincent de Paul operating out of it. This great apostolate which takes St. Vincent de Paul as its patron actually grew up after him but due largely to his inspiring example.
This talk was delivered to the faithful members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in St. Albert the Great Parish, Calgary, during one of their spiritual formation nights. We need not be a member in order to be serving our neediest brothers and sisters- but that certainly wouldn’t hurt!
