St. Vincent, was a priest and founder of "Ladies of Charity" which eventually became the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent had a special place in his heart for the poor, particularity poor children. He is the patron saint of all charities. His feast day is Sept. 27 in the new calendar and July 19th in the traditional calendar. Read more about him HERE and HERE.
St. Vincent's ornament depicts an adult's hand (St. Vincent's hand) giving bread to a child's hands - to symbolize St. Vincent's love and care for poor children
To create this ornament we used light blue, tan, peach, and medium brown felt. We used brown permanent marker to add detail to the bread and blue permanent marker to add detail to the blue background. (the bread looks dark in these pictures -not sure why- but it is lighter in color than pictured.)
St. Vincent de Paul, Pray for us!
May our hearts be filled with a burning love to help others!
