Charzetta Frazier gives the volunteers with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s Good Works Program a thumb’s up for living out their faith. "They not only talk the talk, but they walk the walk," she said. Frazier observed the volunteers on a massive plumbing repair project at her neighbor’s home and also work they did for her. "We are very blessed to have them," she said.
Archbishop Raymond L. Burke has called Kenrick-Glennon Seminary "the heart of the life of the Archdiocese of St. Louis."
"That’s very true," Archbishop Burke told the Review. "That’s simply because the seminary is the place in which I’m providing the priests for the parishes.
