Episode 241: The Basilica of St. Mary's Society of St. Vincent de Paul Serves Our Neighbors in Need


Our Lord reminds us that whatever we do for the poor among us we do for Him. We hear Him with our hearts and minds, but the daily demands of life can leave us without the opportunity to respond in a most personal way. Becoming a volunteer and/or making a sacrificial donation to our parish’s St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Society is that opportunity.

On the podcast, two of SVdP leaders, Jim Larocco and Pete Bautz, share amazing stories about how the society helps those in need and why the needs lately have been so great.

What makes SVdP unique among all charity providers in Alexandria is that we go to the people who call for help, visiting them in their homes, confirming their need, listening to their challenges, and showing them in the most real way that they are not alone and not forgotten by Our Lord. It is an extraordinary gift to be able to touch someone’s life in this way.

Please join us for our upcoming open house at 314 Duke Street in Alexandria, VA, on September 27, 2021, at 7:30 p.m. to learn more.
