Message from Paul Nazareth: 

Message from Paul Nazareth: Greetings Vincentian colleagues

Message from the President:  Why Attend the Annual National Formation (ANF)?


The theme for the 2024 ANF is SERVING IN HOPE. Vincentians ‘Serve in Hope’ because we are called to bring the love of God and the compassion of Jesus to people in need.

St. Vincent said “God demands first the heart, then the work”. It is only with our heart that we can bring compassion, respect and devotion to members of our community who are vulnerable and marginalized.

By visiting people in need in their homes and walking alongside to guide them to resources to break the cycle of poverty, we give them hope for the future.
