The Colloque Archive

A small group of people like the members of the Irish Province of the Congregation of the Mission is constantly in danger of losing its identity under the bombardment of mass communications. We want to be different, to be ourselves, to be in some way recognisably in the tradition of St Vincent, yet we find ourselves pushed into a good but dull and common mould by the forces of centralised religious bureaucracy and the stereotyped thoughts of the media. Colloque is an attempt to assert ourselves.

To use the name “Vincentian” implies a wish to share the ideal, the thought patterns of Saint Vincent. Regular contact with Saint Vincent through his writings is the normal way of doing this. In this first issue and in succeeding ones members of the Province will have a twice yearly renewal of their awareness of Saint Vincent. It is to be hoped that this will aid them both in personal piety and in preaching.
