Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a pretty awesome organization. Its members are devoted to serving the poor through personal, face-to-face encounters. In 2007, the Society helped 229,503 people in western Washington alone. Anyway, this year, the Society is celebrating the 175th anniversary of its founding in 1833 by a group of college students in Paris, and I got to write a story for the occasion for The Catholic Northwest Progress. Check it out.
