The Council General International (CGI) of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) is pleased to publish an overview of the activities undertaken by the CGI in 2020.
As shown, there have been a myriad of activities and good deeds in 2020, despite the health crisis that has rocked humankind. With God’s grace and the Holy Spirit’s power, the CGI has never stopped working during these difficult times of pandemic.
We are grateful to God for the blessings granted, which enabled us to achieve all these goals. We express our gratitude to the Superior or National Councils for the support provided to the Council General. We thank Father Andrés Motto for his great work as spiritual counsellor.
We thank the Vincentian Family for their alliances and common projects with us. We thank all the staff at our general headquarters in Paris. Our heartfelt thanks to all the members, brothers and sisters, who minister in any department, commission or division within the International Structure.
We kindly request that you share the attached PDF file with all National, Central, Zone Councils, and Vincentian Conferences and Works, as well as with the local churches and leaders of the Vincentian Family in each of our territories.
Looking forward, God willing, to a more prosperous 2021 (Themed year of Devaux).
