Celebrating 170 Years of the Vincentian Priests and Brothers in Philadelphia

“Our vocation is to go, not just to one parish, not just to one diocese, but all over the world; and do what? To set people’s hearts on fire, to do what the Son of God did. He came to set the world on fire in order to inflame it with His love.”

~St. Vincent de Paul, 30 May 1659


Every month, the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal will be releasing a video celebrating the 170th Anniversary of good works of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province. Join us throughout the year as we share stories of the rich history, influence, and experiences of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province.

November – Homelessness and Hunger

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week occurs November 16 through November 24. This month we look at the services the Vincentians provide up and down the Eastern Province. Focusing on two major cities in which the Vincentians help the poor and forgotten — Philadelphia, PA and Niagara Falls, NY — we’ll see the lives that are being transformed by their ministries and compassion.
