“Making our families and communities a foretaste of heaven”

This is the title of the letter from Father Tomaž Mavrič, the 24th successor of St. Vincent de Paul, as Superior General of the Congregation of the Mission and the Daughters of Charity.

At the heart of the Letter is the challenge to build healthy, deeply spiritual, and contemplative families, communities, work teams and groups.

The Vincentian Family is a movement composed of more than 160 institutions and some four million people who today follow Jesus Christ by serving the poor, following the example of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac and many other saints who have enriched the Vincentian charism over the past four centuries.
