The Story of the Miraculous Medal
The Blessed Virgin Mary manifested the image of the Miraculous Medal to St. Catherine Labouré in 1830, generously entrusting it to us, her children, and bestowing upon us a mission to bring others to her for the many graces she bestows.
Join Our Worldwide Family of Prayer
Our members and their loved ones become part of a global family of prayer, and are the beneficiaries of countless Novenas and Masses said by the members and priests of St. Vincent de Paul. This active prayer ministry lifts up our personal intentions and unites us all under the care of Mary, Our Mother.
