Recognizing the face of the Christ in those born 2000 years after Christ

Join with Society of St. Vincent de Paul in recognizing the face of the Christ in those born 2000 years after the birth of Christ.

For members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul members, it is a spiritual journey of growth through service to people and families in need. From the Society’s traditional home visits, food pantries and assistance with rent and utilities, to innovative health care, financial and mentoring programs, the Society’s Vincentians see and serve the person of Christ in the people they encounter every day.  In this 10-week series, Vincentians volunteer across the country to bring effective, personalized help to those in poverty and share with you their stories of Christ’s love along the way.

The documentary produced by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, “Our Faith in Action” will be featured on Eternal Word Television Network on Sunday, January 6 at 3:30 pm Eastern Standard Time.

David Barringer, National President of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul stated: The documentary makes it clear that the charism and spirit of St. Vincent is still very much alive … even 400 years after his death. It gives people the opportunity to learn more about us and our work. The film illustrates a wide range of Society’s activities and initiatives that have been developed throughout the United States. The documentary is a positive statement about the power of faith and the ways in which that faith is acted upon for the benefit of countless men and women.

The “Our Faith in Action” film will air on EWTN cable channels on Sunday, January 6 at 3:30 pm Eastern, 2:30 pm Central, 1:30 pm Mountain, 12:30 pm Pacific. Click here to find the EWTN channel in your zip code. Click here to view the program schedule.
