The Vincentians (the Priests and Brothers of St. Vincent de Paul) will kick off their 170th anniversary in Philadelphia with an interactive art event.
On Feb. 28, the order will team up with the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal to host an interactive event with artist William Butler. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., dozens of local community members — many of whom have been impacted by the good works of the Vincentians –will help to create a painting that highlights the rich history of the order in Philadelphia.
The event will take place at St. Vincent’s Church, located at 109 East Price Street in Philadelphia.
Starting from their hub in Germantown — where more than 29 percent of residents live below the poverty line –the order has impacted countless Philadelphians through community organizations including PAR Recycle Works, which helps to employ and support individuals reentering the community after incarceration; My Place Germantown, which provides housing and support for the homeless; and Face to Face, which combats hunger and homelessness in the city.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
