In a recent letter to the heads of the Vincentian Family, Fr. Tomaž Mavrič, C.M., writes:
“As announced in previous communications, the Vincentian Family Executive Committee is inviting all branches and members of the Vincentian Family to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the charism with multiple initiatives under the theme “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
Beyond this year 2017, we are called to address the cry of the people facing homelessness by working more efficiently towards ending homelessness in the world and this includes caring for refugees, migrants, street people, displaced persons, slum dwellers, etc. For this reason, on June 28, 2017, the Worldwide Vincentian Family will formally announce this global initiative on homelessness at the European Union Parliament.
You will find attached the Cover Paper and the Project Plan of the FamVin Homeless Alliance. We kindly ask you to share these documents with your leadership and all your members.”
