On Sunday, Aug. 18, 30 Vincentian volunteers were consecrated and integrated into the International Association of Charities (AIC) in Peru. These volunteers have years of Vincentian formation provided first by Sister Helen Therese Mack and then by Hermana Laura Rumiche Morales. AIC is part of the wider Vincentian family; it is a worldwide network of 100,000 volunteers who work in their local communities to combat poverty. Click this link for more information.

Those recently consecrated may serve at St. Vincent de Paul Pastoral Center in Piura, in their parishes or with other projects. “We are filled with joy to share the charism and expand it throughout the world with charity and service,” says Hermana Laura.

Father Ricardo Cruz Vicentino presided at the consecration ceremony.
