Seven-day mourning for the tragic death of two young Brazilian Vincentians

Council General International

After learning of the horrific criminal act that took the lives of the young Vincentians Karoline Alves and Luan Augusto da Silva, both from the Conference Virgem Maria, in the city of Cambé (Paraná), Brazil, the President General, confrere Renato Lima, on behalf of the General Council and the entire International Confederation, announces seven days of international mourning.

We are in prayer that the families of the dear young people may be able to bear the immense pain of this very sad moment for Vincentian youth and for our Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Let us pray the prayer DE PROFUNDIS for the soul of the Vincentian youth in all the Conferences around the world.
