July 4: Feast of Vincentian Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

July 4 marks the feast of the Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. He was a Vincentian and a voice for the poor and suffering in his home of Turin, Italy. Pier Giorgio spent his life dedicating himself to helping the poor when he joined his local Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference at age 17. He continued serving until his death from polio at age 24. He was beatified in May 1990 by Pope John Paul II because he was such an outstanding example, not only for Vincentians, but for young people who are looking for a role model.

St. Louise de Marillac Feast Day - May 9

St. Louise de Marillac (1591-1660) was a friend and collaborator of St. Vincent de Paul. Together they co- founded the Daughters of Charity. They organized hospitals for the sick poor, asylums for the orphaned, workshops for the unemployed, championed literacy for the uneducated and established standards for local charities. Louise was a wife, mother, teacher, nurse, social worker and religious foundress. Louise de Marillac was beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920 and canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1934. Pope John XXIII named Louise the Patron of all Christian Social Workers in 1960. In 2016, her feast day was changed to May 9, the anniversary of her beatification.

Project Empower is a systemic change project for our neighbors-in-need with disabilities who are being served by Society of St. Vincent de Paul.  Connecting neighbors-in-need with Allsup increases their chances of being approved at the initial application level by 50%! Most individuals who apply for SSDI do it themselves, and approximately 67% are denied. They then join over a million other Americans in the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) backlog, where they must wait an average 564 days for a hearing. Learn more about how you can help people with disabilities better access this life changing benefit.
