Changes to the formation sessions for the year 2021 at the International Formation Center

by | Feb 15, 2021 | News

Dear members of the Worldwide Vincentian Family:

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be always with us!

Due to the continued pandemic occasioned by COVID-19, we have had to make the painful and sad decision to cancel the I Encounter of CM Bishops and the V Encounter for the Vincentian Family (sessions that were scheduled to take place in Paris during July and August 2021, respectively). These sessions will be rescheduled for 2022.

We are still planning to have the II Encounter of Brothers in the Congregation of the Mission (Friday, October 1 to Saturday, October 20, 2021) and the III Encounter for Missionaries (Sunday, November 7 to Saturday, November 27, 2021). We hope that many Brothers will be able to participate in this encounter which is dedicated and focused on the brotherhood. We also hope many missionaries will take this opportunity to deepen their evangelizing ministry with this formation session that has been created for that objective.

My fraternal greetings in Saint Vincent,

Fr. Andrés R. M. Motto, C.M.
Director of C.I.F.
