As we continue to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the birth of the Vincentian Charism, Fr Tomaž Mavrič, CM President, Vincentian Family Executive Committee invites you to join us in Rome for a Vincentian Family Symposium from 12 – 15 October 2017. We are especially blessed that it will include an audience with Pope Francis.
The 400th anniversary of the charism provides us with the perfect opportunity to celebrate our Vincentian heritage, to give thanks for all that has been done and to develop ideas and plans for the future. Of great importance is the consideration of our changing demographics and social contexts, the pressing needs of the poor, and our ability to best respond to these as a Family.
This invitation is also specially extended to our young people (ages 18-28). We hope that the Symposium will also be a powerful time to animate them in their Vincentian vocation.
Each participant is responsible for the cost of his/her own travel, housing, and food.
We have also created a website through which you will be updated on the events which will occur over this weekend: http://famvin400.info/
