Pilgrimage Vincentian group from the United States visiting Vincentian landmarks

In late September, a Vincentian delegation, made up of around 20 members from the United States led by their National President, visited the Vincentian landmarks in Paris during their week-long stay. Our brothers and sisters had the chance to visit the tomb of Frédéric Ozanam, at Saint-Joseph-des-Carmes; that of sister Rosalie Rendu, at Montparnasse Cemetery; and that of St. Louise de Marillac, at the Motherhouse of the Daughters of Charity. 

On the feast day of St. Vincent de Paul, they attended a very special mass at the Mother-House of the Lazarists (Maison mère des Lazaristes), where, since 1830,  lies the uncorrupted body of the patron of all the works of charity. Moreover, this group visited the new headquarters of the Council General International.
