To honor the 350th death anniversary of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac, the OVIM is organizing a 12-day pilgrimage tour to France and Italy.
AdU's Office for Vincentian Identity and Mission, headed by Ms. Pamela Mantuhac, is arranging the tour in coordination with Executive Resources, Inc. The main stops are Dax, Pouy, Lourdes, Paris, Gannes, Folleville (all in France) and Rome. Most of these places are connected in one way or another to the work of the two saints during their lifetime.
St. Vincent de Paul is a French cleric who devoted his life to the reform of the clergy and to serving the poor in 17th-century France. He founded the Congregation of the Mission and established the Daughters of Charity, a congregation of nuns, together with St. Louise de Marillac. St. Vincent de Paul is known in the Church as the Universal Patron of Charity and is the Patron Saint of Adamson University.
Originally scheduled in April, the tour has been reset to August. Those who are interested may call Ms. Pam for details at 524-2011 loc. 315 or e-mail her through firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
