Theresa Gallant Testimonial

May I live this day compassionate of heart, clear in word, gracious in awareness, courageous in thought, generous in love -- John O’Donohue

“The words in this beautiful blessing are a reminder to me of the mission of St. Vincent de Paul and the many inspirational people who support it and are supported by it. My parents and grandparents were long time contributors to St. Vincent de Paul and regularly modeled their belief in the compassionate work of the organization to me. Encouraged by their example, as well as by the development work I have been involved in during my life, I have included St. Vincent de Paul in my estate plans. I am pleased to be a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Legacy Society and I invite all who believe in the St. Vincent de Paul mission to join me.”
