Vincent de Paul with David R. Fields

Jesus cared for those whom no one else cared for. In this program, we hear the story of Vincent de Paul who is the inspiration for David Fields, Executive Director of Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles and how they care for the poor as Jesus did. Fr. Mike talks with David about all that the Society does to help the poor, especially giving practical help with food, clothes and furniture. They run Thrift Stores where they sell and also have free distribution. They work for systemic changes in people’s lives. This particular Council has 2500 volunteers, serving over 300,000 poor people in the LA region.
The program includes scenes of the various sites around the area, an impressive view of the good work done by the Society. David also talks about what we can do to help with the massive problem of poverty throughout the world.
