Selection of a Patron Saint of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Canada
My Dear Friends in Christ:
The National Spirituality Committee requested nominations of Canadian Saints to be considered the Patron Saint of the Society in Canada. Four wonderful nominees were put forward and the decision will be made by ballot of the membership.
We are pleased to announce that the voting has ended and the results have been tabulated. The Patron Saint of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Canada is Saint Marguerite d’Youville.
It is the intention of National Council to hold the consecration of the Patron Saint at our Fall Board meeting in Québec City in conjunction with the celebration of the 175th anniversary of the Society in Canada. A biography of this truly remarkable woman is available here : Biography
