Fr Gregory Gay offered a two-fold challenge to the annual meeting of Vincentians in Partnership: “First, give yourselves over to this modern day parable called Vincentians in Partnership. While you form various groups and communities, you are part of a wonderful, mysterious, difficult, graced-filled “living parable”. Let this parable that is Vincentians in Partnership take deeper roots in you, so in your little space on this earth you will bear of beams of light in a world filled with contrary lights. In living this parable, you will become the promise of God in person to the many people you serve.
“Secondly, let the Vincentian charism be the ‘mustard seeds” to guide your work. Learn more about the words and works of Saints Vincent and Louise and Blessed Frederic. Reflect and discuss how these Vincentian values impact your work. In embracing our charism as your core corporate identity, you are connected to the Vincentian Family and share in our heritage of hope.” A full copy of his talk can be read here: Fr Greg’s talk.
About 60 members of the Vincentian family gathered for the Annual General Meeting of the VIP on 17th October London. Fr. Gregory Gay CM, is the Superior General of the Vincentian Fathers and of the Daughters of Charity.
