Feast of St. Vincent de Paul

The Central Leadership Team of SCNs Sangeeta, Jackulin and Adeline wish every Sister of Charity of Nazareth and Associate a very happy St. Vincent de Paul Feast Day.

Imagine what the world would be like if St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac had never existed. As we contemplate the impact of their lives, also contemplate the impact of your own lives over the years and what the world would be like if you had not spent your life energy on improving the lives of others through education, health care, social work, legal aid, pastoral ministry or family ministry. We prayerfully remember those who are presently working directly with those who are made poor and those who are involved in systemic change activities that break the chains of poverty and the violence that often accompanies it. May all that we do bring healing on the earth.

As a member of the Vincentian Family, we include here a letter from Tomaž Mavrič, CM, president of the Vincentian Family Executive Committee. His letter encourages all of us to become more involved with other Vincentian groups, to be steeped in Vincentian Spirituality, and to celebrate well the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul.

Additionally, the International Intercultural Committee has prepared this St. Vincent Day Prayer Service for Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022, in celebration of the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul.

    Happy Feast Day to all. The song reminded me of this quote of St. Vincent: “May God animate us with infinite gentleness so that, pervading our words and actions, it will make them pleasing and helpful to our neighbor.”
