About This Edition

We mark several key events in this edition including the Feast Days of St Louise de Marillac and Blessed Rosalie Rendu, two very significant Vincentian leaders. We celebrate Ash Wednesday and the period of Lent, a time of reflection, prayer and growth for Christians. On behalf of the Membership and Development Department, we wish all our members, volunteers, staff and families a happy and safe Easter.

Enjoy the read.

God Bless.
