Congregation of the Mission Founding Day

vdp066January 25th, marks the anniversary of the Foundation of the Congregation of the Mission by St. Vincent de Paul. Please pray for the new vocations to priesthood and for the growth of this religious Vincentian community.

The Congregation of the Mission celebrates January 25th 1617 as its “Foundation Day” but in reality the Congregation was not legally set up until 8 year laters on April 17, 1625. To celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the Congregation of the Mission VinFormation has posted a SlideShare presentation.

The history of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentian Fathers) begins on January 25, 1617.
Vincent de Paul (1581) was ordained on September 23, 1600, at the age of nineteen or twenty. In 1612, he was named pastor of Saint-Medard in Clichy, a poor rural parish just northwest of Paris. As pastor, he experienced the priesthood in a way unknown to him to that point, and told the bishop he was happier than the bishop himself, and even the pope.
However, in less than a year, Cardinal Bérulle recalled him to Paris to become chaplain to the Gondi family and tutor to their children. In January of 1617, Vincent was on the Gondi estates in Picardy, and heard the confession of a dying man, who told Madame de Gondi that he would have been damned without Vincent’s ministry. She urged Vincent to preach a sermon on general confessions. He did it on January 25, 1617. His sermon produced such a response that other priests were called to help hear all the confessions. ** Continue reading ** Czytaj dalej ** Congregation of the Mission Founding Day

Jasełka Polskiej Szkoły Dokształcającej

2018-Jaselka (7)W niedzielę 7 stycznia 2018 roku, dzieci z Polskiej Szkoły Dokształcającej im. Marii Konopnickiej działającej na Greenpoincie, podczas trzech mszy świętych (10:15, 11:30 oraz 13:00) przedstawiły program o Bożym Narodzeniu czyli tradycyjne Jasełka. Dzieci, ubrane w kolorowe stroje, w barwnych i pięknych rymowankach oraz prozą, przypominały nam o istocie świąt Bożego Narodzenia. Dwa tysiące lat temu narodził nam się Jezus Chrystus, Zbawiciel, który otworzyła dla nas bramy nieba, a także pragnie mieszkać w naszych sercach i naszych rodzinach. Dzieci przypomniały nam, że Chrystus przyszedł do każdego człowieka i czeka, aby człowiek Go przyjął. Aniołowie zwiastowali radosną nowinę o Narodzeniu Pana najpierw Pasterzom, ludziom prostym o czystym sercu. Później hołd oddali Mu wielcy tego świata, którzy w osobach Trzech Królów przyszli do Betlejem, a wracając do swojej krainy wielbili Boga. W końcu pokłoniły się Jezusowi-Dziecięciu dzieci reprezentujące każdego z nas.
Serdecznie dziękujemy pani dyrektor Danucie Bronchard, nauczycielom Polskiej Szkoły oraz rodzicom dzieci, za poświęcenie i trud włożony w przygotowanie Jasełek, za uszyte stroje, za piękne kolędy i pastorałki w wykonaniu dzieci, za radość, z jaką to wszystko było czynione. Dziękujemy Robertowi Bronchard za podkłady muzyczne do kolęd śpiewanych przez dzieci.
ZDJĘCIA SA PONIŻEJ….   ** Continue reading ** Czytaj dalej ** Jasełka Polskiej Szkoły Dokształcającej

It’s Advent, a Time to De-Clutter for Christmas

By Veronica Szczygiel

VERONICASZ20171203At the school where I teach, Christmas comes early. So early, in fact, that my students are singing “Little Drummer Boy” in late September. After six years of being exposed to a sprinter’s start to the season, I find it rather endearing. All this practicing culminates in the school’s Lessons and Carols, performed for the students’ families in December. It is always phenomenally spiritual. So, understandably, this celebration of faith requires deep and ongoing preparation.

Children’s melodic voices are praises to God. However, the early arrival of Christmas in the secular world is totally unnerving. Television commercials, billboards, radio songs, and catalogues clogging the mailbox all suddenly announce the arrival not of Christ, but of clutter.

? This early inception of Christmas is out of control. And, if you’re like me, stress-inducing. Every year, just when I’m buried under a pile of essays that seems to weigh a ton – WHAM – on comes a jingle for the latest knickknack or a sultry rendition of “Santa, Baby.” It comes as a shock. It’s unnerving. It grates at my skin like sandpaper. And it seems to suck the joy out of the season. ** Continue reading ** Czytaj dalej ** It’s Advent, a Time to De-Clutter for Christmas
