Reflection and Prayer

Individual and Corporate Prayer

Vincentians are people of prayer! Our meetings always begin and end with prayer. We pray before, during, and after each visit to the homes of neighbors in need.

Reflection and Contemplation

An important part of our formation as Vincentians is the role of reflection and contemplation. At each meeting, members reflect upon spiritual readings from scripture, from our Vincentian publications, or upon our own service. Reflecting together as a group, members are always invited to share their thoughts, so that each can benefit from the others’ insights as we grow in holiness together.

Individually, we also dedicate ourselves to the study of our heritage, including especially the writings of St. Vincent, St. Louise, Blessed Rosalie, and Blessed Frédéric.

Retreats and Liturgies

Vincentians often gather outside of regular meetings to pray and reflect together on retreats that may last a few hours or a few days. In praying and sharing in this way, we seek to grow in holiness together.

In addition, Conferences and Councils work with clergy to plan special liturgies, especially to celebrate our Vincentian Feast Days, but also for Commissioning and Commitment ceremonies for Members and Servant Leaders.
