St-Vincent-de-Paul-LogoBlessed Frederic Ozanam (1813 – 1853) was founder of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Frederic was a husband and father, professor and servant of the poor. He founded the Vincent DePaul Society.

A man of deep faith, and enormous creativity, he has become known as the “The Apostle of Charity” and “Father of the Poor.” His organizing parish missions and other services for the poor shaped our Church’s role in the modern world.

We feel proud and privileged to announce that St. Mary’s Knanaya Church Houston is a part of this international charitable organization. The members meet every second Sunday of the month, to pray for the sick and suffering, especially the sick people in our parish. Thus far the unit has helped several sick and needy people of Kerala.
