“You must realize that
authority is not to be
wielded absolutely,
but charitably.”

St. Louise de Marillac

 

Vincentian Family

The Vincentian Family is made up of religious congregations and lay associations, that were either founded by St. Vincent de Paul or that follow his charism of service to the poor. Common elements found in each group in spite of their diversity and uniqueness include:

  • Recognition of St. Vincent de Paul as their founder or inspiration;
  • A common mission of evangelizing and serving the poor;
  • A common lifestyle and a concrete form of service to the poor;
  • A common incarnational spirituality, to experience God in an encounter with the poor, and to serve and love God in the service of the poor.

The Vincentian Family, the heritage of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac, Frederic Ozanam, St. Elizabeth Seton and so many others, seeks to coordinate its efforts to collaborate for systemic change. The multilingual digital networks of .famvin, collaborates and communicates their efforts world-wide. To learn more visit: https://famvin.org/.
