The Bicentennial Celebration of the Vincentians in America

Vincentian Bicentennial

In 2016, the Congregation of the Mission, the religious community founded by St. Vincent de Paul in 1625, marked its 200th anniversary in America. In honor of this milestone, DePaul University Library and the Office of Mission and Values are proud to present The Bicentennial Celebration of the Vincentians in America: An Exhibition at the John T. Richardson Library: the digital companion.

The physical component of the exhibition featured over 50 objects from DePaul’s Vincentian Studies Collection, held in the John T. Richardson Library’s Special Collections and Archives, and also included materials on loan from both the Archdiocesan Archives of St. Louis, Missouri and the Archives of the Vincentian Curia in Rome, Italy.
