Videos from the Vincentian Family Symposium in Rome

Videos from Vincentian Symposium – In the unique setting of St. Peter’s Square in Rome,  more than 10,000 members of the Vincentian Family from all over the world have had a very special encounter with Pope Francis.

The day began in the morning, when lay and consecrated members of the many Vincentian branches began to congregate, hoping to receive the message that the Holy Father wanted to address to all.

Testimonies, messages, songs, as well as the presentation of the Famvin Alliance against homelessness and the Vincentian film festival, preceded the arrival of Pope Francisco, around 12 o’clock in the morning.

Ceremony in St. Peter’s Square – 3 hours
