World Day of the Poor

The Fourth World Day of the Poor will be observed on 15 November 2020.

This year’s theme “Stretch forth your hand to the poor” is a summons to responsibility and commitment as men and women who are part of our one human family.

We read in Pope Francis’ text “Stretch forth your hand to the poor” (Sir 7:32). Age-old wisdom has proposed these words as a sacred rule to be followed in life. Today these words remain as timely as ever. They help us fix our gaze on what is essential and overcome the barriers of indifference.

Poverty always appears in a variety of guises, and calls for attention to each particular situation. In all of these, we have an opportunity to encounter the Lord Jesus, who has revealed himself as present in the least of his brothers and sisters (cf. Mt 25:40)”. Read the complete text >>>

With the cold weather approaching, charities all across Canada prepare for the busiest time of the year. The COVID-19 response has just increased the burden on us all, but it is felt most keenly by the already marginalized. This is why even more people than usual turn to organizations like the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) for help.

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) in Canada is using The World Day of the Poor as a day in which we are encouraged to consider those less fortunate than ourselves and to give generously what we can.
