Years of Service
New Superior General
The theme of the Assembly is focused on the evangelizing nature of our “being” and our “doing”: Let us allow ourselves to be renewed by the missionary vitality of our Vincentian vocation.
The 42nd General Assembly of the Congregation of the Mission will be held at DePaul University in Chicago, IL (USA) from June 27 – July 15, 2016. The motto of the GA2016 is “Let us allow ourselves to be renewed by the missionary vitality of our Vincentian vocation.”
The Spirit of the Lord put the flame of Evangelization into the hands of St. Vincent de Paul. With boldness and apostolic courage, Vincent converted it into a fire of love, solidarity, and service on behalf of the poor. After 400 years, that same Spirit enlivens the followers of St. Vincent de Paul, as they carry on his evangelical legacy and remain faithful to the inspiration of the Founder, following the signs of the times.
