SVDP Resource for 2017 – Year Dedicated to Bailly

In his first Circular Letter as President General of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Renato Lima de Oliveira announced that 2017 is the “Year Dedicated to Bailly.” Emmanuel Joseph Bailly was the first president of the SVDP. This memorable man created the appropriate conditions for a group of young people to organize and create the “Charity Conferences” in France in 1833. It is worth learning about Bailly’s story in detail.
Many thanks to Ralph Middlecamp, president-elect of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul USA, for sharing this presentation with Famvin.
