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 in anticipation of the 170th Anniversary celebration. Join us throughout the year as we share stories of the rich history, influence, and experiences of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province.

July: Building Faith Communities

Vincentians recognize that people need strong communities of faith to help them in their daily journey of loving God and neighbor. Our priests and brothers invigorate people’s spiritual growth by building these faith-filled communities in parishes where they serve. As brothers and sisters in Christ, community members live the Gospel message by serving one another with dignity, respect, and generosity.
