Prayer to St. Vincent
St. Vincent, patron of all charitable associations and father of those who are in misery, come to our assistance. Obtain from Our Lord help for the poor, relief for the infirm, consolation for the afflicted, protection for the abandoned, a spirit of generosity for the rich, grace of conversion for sinners, zeal for priests, peace for the Church, tranquility and order for all nations, and salvation for them all. May we be united in the life to come, by your intercession, and experience joy, gladness, and everlasting happiness. Amen.
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, one of the oldest charitable, social and humanitarian organizations, is seen today as a huge international movement of the apostolate of charity and social action. Through the spiritual bonding and human formations of its members, this Catholic lay organization leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederick Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent De Paul.
If you are interested in helping, leave a message at the Rectory, 718-429-5438, and we will contact you.
