This week we visit the home of the St.Vincent de Paul Society at their national headquarters in St. Louis. For over 175 the Society has served millions of people on the front lines through their 4,400 local conferences. The society serves 800,000 members worldwide, known as Vincentians. Their goal is to grow in holiness by building a more just world through personal relationships and service to people. In a single year, 100,000 U.S. members in 4,400 local communities provided $3.4 billion worth of service to the poor. St.Vincent de Paul operated 435 thrift stores that produced $150 million in mission-related revenues. And spent $75 million running emergency, transitional and long-term housing programs.
