10. Who was Saint Vincent de Paul?  (top)
Saint Vincent de Paul (24 April 1581 – 27 September 1660) was a Catholic priest dedicated to serving the poor, and a Catholic saint. He was canonized in 1737. Saint Vincent was born in France and became a priest, but a slave’s deathbed confession ignited his passion for the suffering. In 1622 De Paul was appointed chaplain to the galleys, and in this capacity he gave missions for the galley-slaves. In 1625 Saint Vincent founded the Congregation of the Mission, a society of missioning priests commonly known as the Vincentians, to work among the poor in small towns and the countryside. In 1633, with the assistance of Louise de Marillac he founded the Daughters of Charity.  He was renowned for his compassion, humility and generosity. Learn more>
