April: Celebrate Cultural Diversity
April is Celebrate Diversity and Multicultural Month. As a faith-filled community, we see the face of Christ in everyone we serve regardless of nationality, belief, or background. Our Vincentian Priests and Brothers serve in various multicultural parishes up and down the east coast. They organize lay faith-formation programs, promote devotion to Our Blessed Mother, and most important, evangelize and spread the Good News. Join us this month as we celebrate our Vincentian multicultural parishes and share a weekly stories about the wonderful people we serve. We hope you’ll embrace this month along with us and celebrate the diverse people in your lives.
