Rome, 25 November 2020

24 November, after a long agony, the mother of Father Javier Alvarez, Vicar General of the Congregation of the Mission and former Director General of the Daughters of Charity passed away.

All of us missionaries of Saint Vincent and Daughters of Charity gather around him and his family in a fraternal embrace and in prayer of intercession for his mother, Hortensia, so that she may now rest in the peace of the Lord after always having lived in faith in him.
