Vincent and Louise


Vincent de Paul, Priest, 1660 and Louise de Marillac, Vowed Religious, 1660

Today, the church remembers Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac cofounders of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, a congregation of laywomen dedicated to teaching and hospital work.

 The Collect:

Most Gracious God, who has bidden us to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before you; Teach us, like your servants Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac, to see and to serve Christ by feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, and caring for the sick; that we may know him to be the giver of all good things, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
