About our Parish
St. Vincent de Paul was born to a poor peasant family in the French village of Pouy on April 24, 1581. His first formal education was provided by the Franciscans. He did so well, he was hired to tutor the children of a nearby wealthy family. He used the monies he earned teaching to continue his formal studies at the University of Toulose where he studied theology.
There are some excellent Internet resources to keep people informed about what is happening across our society from a Catholic perspective such as the Catholic Parliamentary Office.
