Vincent was born in Gascony. His family were peasant farmers. He was ordinated in 1600 and unfortunately taken captive by Barbary pirated who brought him to Tunis. Through a series of lucky events, he managed to escape. After going back to France, he moved to Rome where he continued his studies and was then sent back to France to serve as a chaplain as well as a priest at Clichy. In 1617, he founded the "Daughters of Charity", an organization who supported victims of war and helped freeing slaves from Africa. Vincent de Paul died on the 27th of September in Paris.
