Father Gregory Gay, CM announces significant changes for the Vincentian Family.
“After having reflected on recommendations from the Vincentian Family Executive Committee (VFEC), along with the responses of the Commission for the Promotion of Systemic Change and the Vincentian Family Collaborative Commission, I have arrived at the following decisions I believe will help move the Vincentian Family forward.
“The first matter is about the establishment of a new Vincentian Family Office. It will be located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in offices provided by the Eastern Province of the Congregation of the Mission….
“This brings me to the second point: Fr. Joseph Agostino, C.M., will be the coordinator for the Vincentian Family Office in Philadelphia…
“Thirdly, the official web site of the Vincentian Family (http://famvin.org/) will become the responsibility of the Vincentian Family Office under the guidance of the VFEC…
“In addition to the matters regarding location, staffing and web site for the Vincentian Family Office, I have decided we should expand the Vincentian Family Executive Committee to include three more branches of the Vincentian Family.
“I made these decisions in light of the information I received from the members of the VFEC and from Commissions of the International Vincentian Family. It is my firm belief the actions we will undertake will enhance the work of the VFEC and ultimately strengthen the Vincentian Family.
