famvin logoPrelude to 2015 and the Year of Vincentian Family Collaboration – Together in Christ we Vincentians make a Difference.”

It will be difficult to collaborate with other followers of Vincent and Louise if we don’t know who they are.

A little over a year ago FamVin presented a quick overview of statistics about the Vincentian Family and asked for visitors to round out the list.

Vincentian Family – Statistics

  • International Association of Charities or AIC (1617): 250,000+, 52 countries
  • Congregation of the Mission (1625): 3,500+ priests and brothers, 85 countries
  • Daughters of Charity (1625): 18,000+, 94 countries
  • Society of St. Vincent de Paul (1833): 750,000+, 150 countries
  • Sisters of Charity Federation North America (1833): 12 congregations, 3,400 Sisters, 600 lay affiliates, 26 countries
  • Religious of St. Vincent (1845): 236, 6 countries
  • Vincentian Marian Youth (1847): 123,000+, 64 countries

  • Brothers of Charity (1807): 600 members, 70 associates, 15,000 lay volunteers, 25 countries

Can you imagine what a difference such a group can make collectively?

As we prepare for the Year of Vincentian Family Collaboration it would be worthwhile to revisit that list.

These are statistics from late 2013, and do not represent a complete list.

Who is missing? Do you have any corrections to offer? (Some suggestions were offered at the time and posted in the comments on the earlier post.)

Use the FamVin Contact form to submit material.

Not doubt there will be a more organized attempt focused on such a project. This is an informal attempt to get us thinking.
