How to follow the coming Vincentian General Assembly

wide-logo (1)Fr. G. Gregory Gay, CM writes a letter explaining how to follow news of the up-coming General Assembly of the Congregation of the Mission.

Dear Confreres,

May the grace of Jesus Christ accompany us during this final stage of preparation for the XLII General Assembly, which will take place in Chicago (the United States) from 27 June – 15 July 2016.

There have been many preparations and there are great expectations as we gather together to celebrate this event. In fact, this will be the first time that a General Assembly is held outside of Europe and, during this gathering, we will elect a new Superior General who will serve the Congregation during the next six years.

In this context, communication will play an important role especially in light of the recent development of technology and the multiple modalities that can provide us with immediate information. The Office of Communications at the Curia has formulated a Communication Plan so that all the themes and work of the Assembly can be accessed by the confreres.

This Communication Plan involves the use of digital media and the social networks. Each one of those various forms of communication has its own public, its own language. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of these differences in order to make known the information with regard to the assembly.

Below you fill find a list of the different sites that the confreres can utilize in order to be touch with what occurs during the Assembly. We encourage you to make yourselves familiar with these various sites so that, together, all of us might experience the joy of this event.

    I will continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will guide the Congregation in its evangelization outreach. I pray for all those who are participating in this our 400th year of Service and Mission to the Church as the sons of St. Vincent de Paul. May God continue to bless the hearts, hands, vision and work of our Congregation.
