Earlier in May, a new general administrative body was elected for the Vincentian Congregation. This clerical society, located in India, was based on the Common Rules of St. Vincent de Paul and on the model of the Congregation of the Mission. It comes under the category of the Societies of Common Life according to the manner of religious and is of Pontifical Right. Established in 1904, it was forced to disperse by 1915, but was revived again in 1927, officially being named the Vincentian Congregation in 1938. “To preach the Good News to the poor” (Lk.4: 18) is the motto of the Congregation.
Congratulations and welcome to the New General Administrative Body for the Vincentian Congregation, pictured below:
