In preparation for Christmas, the Famvin Systemic Change Commission invites you to a weekly offering of Advent Reflections on the following topics: Vincentian Spirituality, Charity and Justice; Catholic Social Teaching; & Collaboration for Social Impact. The retreat will consist of weekly reflections starting with an introduction session outlining the topics for the following four weeks.

The fourth video in the advent series is attached below:

The Vincentian Family is a movement made up of more than 160 institutions and some 4,000,000 people who follow Jesus Christ, serving the poor, as did St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac, and many other believers who, over the last four centuries, have enriched the Vincentian charism.
