Dear Leaders and Members of the Vincentian Family,

As was mentioned in January at our meeting of the international Vincentian Family in Rome, 2017 marks the 400th Anniversary of the birth of the Vincentian charism.

The Vincentian Family Collaboration Commission, having received the approval of the Vincentian Family Executive Committee as well as an enthusiastic reception from those present in Rome, now presents to you our Vincentian Family’s Global Initiative for the celebration of this year.

A special note to the international leaders: please make sure you send your Branch’s work plan by October 1, 2016 to Fr. Joe Agostino at vfo@famvin.org.

May the Lord bless all our efforts to welcome the stranger in our midst.

G. Gregory Gay, C.M.

Superior General
