                 The Fleur de Lis Award
        During the 17th century, Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac
looked upon the world with eyes of compassion for the suffering. They had
ears to hear the cries of the poor, the destitute, the downtrodden and the
 victims of violence and injustice. This drove them into action.
        In 1617, Vincent de Paul founded the Ladies of Charity, lay
women in the parishes to help in the mission of serving the poor. In 1633,
together with Louise de Marillac, the Daughters of Charity were founded
to serve the poor in the spirit of humility, simplicity and charity.
        The Fleur de Lis is a symbol of French nobility. St. Vincent de Paul
Center has chosen the Fleur de Lis because it is a symbol of our founder’s
homeland as well as Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac’s ability to
procure the funds and resources of the French nobility to serve the poor.
        The recipients of the award personify the mission of “serving the
poor in the spirit of humility, simplicity and charity.”
