The AIC International Assembly, celebrating their 400th Anniversary, began on Sunday, March 12 in Châtillon, France. Updates and photos have been shared all week on the Ladies of Charity USA and AIC International Facebook pages (click photos to see captions):

Below is the Commitment prayer used for the Reconsecration at Church of St. André with Cardinal Philippe Barbarin:


Lord, Jesus Christ, from the time of our baptism we have belonged to you and since then we have professed our faith countless times. Today, in the presence of the whole Church we come before you and we consecrate ourselves to you. WE commit ourselves to avoid sin and to deepen our relationship with you and with our brothers and sisters. With your grace, we commit ourselves to imitate your unconditional love for all people, especially as we serve those men and women who are most poor and abandoned. May we follow the example of Saint Vincent and Saint Louise and walk along the paths of the gospel. At the same time, may we provide for the spiritual and material welfare of those who are poor, those persons in whom you reveal yourself, you who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
