Saint Vincent de Paul


Our sponsors, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, tie their history back to Saint Vincent de Paul and Saint Louise de Marillac.

Each year, USM celebrates the Feast of Saint Vincent de Paul with a week-long #BeAVincent campaign.

During this week, the USM community focuses intently on serving those around us — especially Saint Vincent's call to feed the hungry.


 


#BeAVincent Week — 2017



In preparation for the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul on Saturday, Sept. 27,
USM has planned a week filled with opportunities to #BeAVincent:

 




Go out of your way this week to #BeAVincent through random acts of kindness.

Open a door, flash a smile, give a compliment.

Follow USM on Twitter or Instagram for ideas, with the hashtag: #BeAVincent.

Join the movement—share your own ideas using #BeAVincent.

 
 

That's right — ANSWER A SIMPLE QUESTION about St. Vincent de Paul
for a chance to WIN A WALMART GIFT CARD!


Questions will be available in De Paul Library daily.
St. Vincent de Paul was dedicated to SERVING and FEEDING the POOR.

So we're providing TWO opportunities to directly FEED THOSE IN NEED,
and ONE chance to help raise funds for FEED THE NEED, USM's annual food packaging event.

Plus we're live-tweeting at a WATCH PARTY for the POPE'S VISIT & more!
