Today we highlight the Middle School House of Blessed Frederic (1813-1853) who was beatified on August 22, 1997. His feast day is September 9.
Blessed Frederic was born into a family of 14 children, He devoted his life to the poor, establishing a newspaper called “The New Era” dedicated to securing justice for impoverished people. In 1833, he founded the St. Vincent de Paul Society which provides support to people in need in over 131 countries.
Members of the All Saints “House of Blessed Frederic” are planning a service project in October to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
