World Day of the Poor - Tools for Members

You are here

The Fourth World Day of the Poor will be observed on 15 November 2020.  This year’s theme “Stretch forth your hand to the poor” is a summons to responsibility and commitment as men and women who are part of our one human family,  as we can read in Pope Francis’ text

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is in a perfect position to promote the World Day of the Poor.  That special day is also a great opportunity for the Society to:

  • increase the visibility of SSVP work and activities;
  • make known the mission of the SSVP;
  • foster closer ties between Vincentians and parishioners during Eucharistic celebrations, to live the message of the Gospel together by serving Christ through the poor with love, respect, justice and joy;
  • recruit new members;
  • conduct campaigns to raise fund or collect non-perishable food items in support of Vincentian work.

Tools for the campaign to assist are currently in development.
