To mark its 75th anniversary in 2020, the United Nations will launch the biggest-ever global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future.
The Vincentian Family at the UN is strongly supporting work in the cities. Advocating for financial support of infrastructure, environmentally sound planning, and promoting the right to housing are a few of the areas in which we continue to work.
The Vincentian Family at the UN attended and participated at the seventh session of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF 2019)
In March 2017, the superior General of the Congregation of the Mission and his council approved the creation of the Vincentian International Network for Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation.
Coming from a retreat on “Integral Ecology: Reclaiming our Eco-Human Spirituality” held at St. John’s University, I have been thinking that for our Vincentian family it will be important to have a new formation that connects contemplative and prophetic mysticism with our charism.
