Father Dehon’s birth day
March has always been a special month for members of the Dehonian Family: we celebrate the feast of the Annunciation, the feast of the “Ecce Venio” and the “Ecce Ancilla”, and joyfully remember the birth of our Founder and his baptism.
It is precisely in this month that we celebrate a day for Dehonian vocations, an occasion “to remember a man who, through his approach to God and his understanding of the Kingdom of God, generated a movement that continues today” (Father José Ornelas Carvalho, 2015). It is an opportunity to better know his rich personality and his profound experience of faith. This is a time to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers, new vocations, religious and lay people, who can carry on the charism that Father Dehon has left us as an inheritance.
