Rediscover Vincentian Stories of Awakening

St. Vincent de Paul encouraged five particular traits in his comrades: simplicity, meekness, mortification, humility and zeal.

Through the 40 days of Lent, we shared stories of ordinary people from all walks of life who shared their stories of how and when they woke up to the values in their life

Here is the opportunity to rediscover the stories of these Vincentian Values and how they are alive in the daily experiences of those around us. It was a privilege to see how the everyday practices of being honest, approachable, self-disciplined, realistic and hardworking, in the spirit of St. Vincent, transformed their lives and the lives of others.
