Our Patron - ST VINCENT DE PAUL (1581-1660)
St Vincent De Paul was born on 24 April 1581 in Pouy, a little village near Dax in France. His parents were Jean de Paul and Bertrand de Moras. He became a priest on 23 September 1600. After six decades of priestly life, Fr Vincent breathed his last on 27 September 1660 pronouncing the holy name of Jesus. A saint has died was a popular expression of the crowd who attended the funeral. Pope Benedict XIII beatified him on 13 August 1724 and he was canonized on 16 June 1737. On May 12, 1885, Pope Leo XIII declared him "the Patron of all works of charity in the Universal Church". Vincentian family commemorates 27 September every year as "Patron's Day".
