Superior General Father Gregory Gay writes of plans for the Vincentian Family to celebrate the Feast of st. Vincent.
Dear Members of the Vincentian family,
As we celebrate the feast of St. Vincent de Paul, on behalf of the Vincentian Family and the leaders of our various branches, I write to inform you that we have decided to dedicate this coming year to the “New Evangelization.”
We will do so as a Vincentian Family by focusing on three key areas of fidelity in following Jesus Christ, evangelizer and servant of the poor:
- a need for personal and communal conversion;
- a need to go beyond ourselves by listening to the cry of the poor, especially those who live on the periphery of our cities, and on the margins of society today;
- a need to evangelize and provide new ways of pastoral care for the family.
