Feast Day: St. Vincent Pallotti

Born into an Italian noble family, Vincent was the founder of the Pious Society of Missions (Pallottines). He devoted his life to the poor and penitents, and started the special observance at Rome of the Octave of the Epiphany.  His mission continues to this day throughout the world through communities of Pallottine priests and brothers, Pallottine sisters, Pallottine Missionary Sisters, and various lay groups.

St. Vincent Pallotti, pray for us!
