The Vincentian Fathers and Brothers (Congregation of the Mission) a world-side Catholic group of priests and brothers, founded by St. Vincent de Paul in 1625, has recently published two videos: Discover Fire and Our Story. The purpose of the videos is to encourage men to think about becoming members of our religious community and to join us in service to the poor. We envision a world in which the rich and poor come together as equals around the table of God's love, with mutual respect and appreciation, with mutual dignity and justice. We need the help of men between the ages of 21 and 45 to help us build a better world. Join us and make a difference in the world.
What can I do? How can I make a difference in this world of ours? It seems almost impossible. About 400 years ago a simple French priest asked himself the same questions. His name was Vincent de Paul. In spite of the obstacles he faced, Vincent brought about change that continues to this day. His name is forever linked with the idea of charity. His vision of service to the poor has inspired many to carry on his legacy.
We are members of a community of priests and brothers founded by St. Vincent who wish to bring a message of hope to the abandoned poor of the world. Like many who have gone before us we are trying to make a difference, to bring about lasting change in this world of ours. For that reason we are using modern means of communication to make his legacy better known to those of our generation who are asking the same questions. What can I possibly do to make a difference? We extend an invitation to modern apostles of charity who are searching for meaning. Contact us at:
