Welcome the Next Generation of Vincentians

An abundance of care, trust, and mentorship: Vincentians must offer these to the next generation of men graced by God with the divine call of vocation. Their experiences, perspectives, and service will ensure the Vincentians thrive as we begin our next 400 years. In May 2024, the Vincentians of the Eastern Province, USA, ordained three men into our “Little Company” at the Basilica Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.

Vincentian Insights from the Province

Fr. John Freund, CM

“Why Am I a Vincentian Priest?

For me, the answer lies in a culture I love. No, definitely not the popularized clerical culture rightly being called into question. I speak of a very different, simple, lived culture.

Fr. Tom McKenna, CM

Of all four of the gospels, the one where Jesus is most alone and abandoned at the end is Mark’s. Everybody ran. Jesus is rejected, abandoned, mocked, betrayed, and even seems forsaken by his Father, God. Jesus knows suffering and death “from the inside.”

Fr. Pat Griffin, CM

When someone has embraced the Word of God or understood a directive of the Lord, he/she cannot restrain it. It demands to be exposed and expressed. The Holy Spirit drives that deeper appreciation of the message of Jesus.
