Our Faith in Action

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul highlights its core values of spirituality, friendship, and service in season 2 of “Our Faith in Action: Today’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul,” airing on EWTN Global Catholic Television Network.

The series follows St. Vincent de Paul members, known as Vincentians, on their spiritual growth journey through service to people 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, Vincentians see the face of Christ in those we serve.

In the series, Vincentians volunteer across the country to bring effective, personalized help to people in poverty and share their stories of Christ’s love along the way.

“The series is great for highlighting the Society’s faith-filled members and some of our special works,” said SVdP National President Ralph Middlecamp. “We hope that television viewers who see ‘Our Faith in Action’ will feel we have answered their need for how they can put their own faith into action and then join the Society in their communities.”
