On August 7th, gathered under the same spirit of the Vincentian Family, we, the former students of Vincentian educational institutions, “Vincentians Without Borders” met for the second time. We hope to bring together our talents and our willingness to serve those men and women who are in need. These virtual meetings provide us with a space for spiritual, social, cultural feedback, material support and a mutual exchange of ideas. We also hope to transform the present reality and “infect” others with the Vincentian charism.
This sharing was facilitated by Angela Medina (Dominican Republic, coordinator of the Confraternity of Former Students). She was accompanied by Fr. Flavio Pereira Tercero, CM, (International Vincentian Family Office in Philadelphia, USA). Collaborators included: Ligia Ferráez de México (Coordinator of FAVILA), Julio Castellanos, (Guatemala, International Councilor of the Association of the Miraculous Medal), Edith Palma Flores, (Nicaragua, former student at the Centro Escolar La Recolección), Isabel Polío (El Salvador, Vincentian Marian Youth), Giselle Matos (former student at the Centro Educativo Santa Luisa de Marillac and Juan Antonio Toribio (Dominican Republic, former student at Colegio San Vicente de Paúl).
Courage, life without sharing is less interesting than when we act together as a family!
