“Our Faith in Action: Today’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul” will release its final five episodes with a special weeklong event on EWTN Global Catholic Network. From February 6 – 10, one new episode will air each day at 5:30 PM EASTERN / 4:30 PM CENTRAL.
The series follows SVdP members, known as Vincentians, on their spiritual growth journey through service to people and families in need. From the Society’s traditional Home Visits (where we bring friendship and aid to neighbors in need), 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 this 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.
“We are proud to share Our Faith in Action. It’s been a real labor of love and collaboration between our National Council and local groups across the country,” said SVdP National President Ralph Middlecamp. “We hope that when viewers see what Vincentians do in their communities through these shows, they will want to put their own faith into action and come join us!”
The one-week event of Our Faith in Action: Today’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul will air daily on EWTN cable channels from February 6 – 10 at 5:30 PM EASTERN / 4:30 PM CENTRAL. Each episode will re-air the following morning at 2:30 AM EASTERN / 1:30 AM CENTRAL. Click here to find the EWTN channel in your zip code.
