Sept. 27, 2022 - Celebrating St. Vincent de Paul
Today, St. Ann’s Center invites you to join us in celebrating the Feast Day of Saint Vincent de Paul! Known as the “Apostle of Charity,” Saint Vincent was a pioneer of mission work in his native France, finding uniquely creative ways to serve and stand with the poor of his day.
Saint Vincent’s collaboration with another gifted leader, Saint Louise de Marillac, led to their founding of the Daughters of Charity in 1633. The Daughters of Charity went on to found many schools, hospitals, and social service agencies, a legacy which includes founding St. Ann's Center in 1860.
Our challenges may be different than the ones Saint Vincent faced during his lifetime, but our response is fundamentally the same – to be loving and “creative to infinity” in our service to those most in need. When housing-insecure mothers and their children arrive at St. Ann’s, they aren’t just provided with transitional housing – they are cared for in an environment that is safe, nurturing, healing, empowering, strength based, and where all are served with compassion, dignity and respect.*
Since our earliest days in DC, many special women and men have sustained and strengthened St. Ann’s ability to provide consistent care for the most vulnerable - even through nation and world-changing events. You are an essential part of this tradition of caring!
Through your generous time, talent, and treasure, you have allowed St. Ann’s to continue following the path of Gospel charity illuminated by Saint Vincent and his contemporaries. Thank you for giving us so much to celebrate and be thankful for on this special Feast Day!
