On the occasion of the 350th.anniversary of the death of Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac, there was a solemn con-celebration of Mass on Saturday 24th. April.

The cathedral which holds 2,400 persons was practically full. There were 5 bishops and 50 priests and deacons from the northern dioceses of England . There was a large gathering of the Daughters of Charity as well as many members of other religious congregations including 8 Sisters of Evron. There were members of institutions set up by the Daughters of Charity e.g. ‘the school for the hearing impaired, and the blind. It was very moving to listen to a blind child singing the Responsorial Psalm at the Mass. The refrain was ‘The Lord hears the cry of the poor' Many blind and hearing impaired people brought up the gifts and groups of poor people carried banners displaying all the good work which is being done throughout Britian and beyond by the members of the St. Vincent de Paul society and several other Vincentian inspired groups. The charism of Vincent was very strongly experienced by the whole gathering.

There is an organisation called ‘The Vincentian Millennium Partnership' to which we, Sisters of Evron are now associated. This partnership is an umbrella organisation set up to foster collaboration among those organisations, groups, trusts, charities and religious congregations in Great Britain which are influenced by the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. The ethos of the VMP is rooted in the Gospel and is best summed up in the words of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel. 'Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, you do it to me' the main objectives of the Vincentian Millennium Partnership are:

-To foster communication and collaboration between the founding

-Partners and their associates

-To foster a sense of belonging to the Vincentian family here in Britian

-To deepen the underlying spirituality and ethos of its members

-To support and empower those trapped in poverty

-To oppose structural injustice and lobby for justice

-To work together in practical projects which support those in need.

It was a wonderful privilege to be part of such an event and to experience the closeness and relevance of our charism as daughters of Perrine Thulard, with that of St. Vincent de Paul and Louise.
