Vincentian Heritage Week 2014 — September 2014

Vincentian Heritage Week, an annual celebration of Niagara University’s rich history of education and service in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul, took place Sept. 22-26, 2014. Also known as Founder’s Week, Vincentian Heritage Week is a way for the university community to pay homage to St. Vincent, a 17th century Catholic priest who inspired and organized his contemporaries to serve the less fortunate, and St. Louise de Marillac, the Patroness of Christian Social Workers who co-founded the Daughters of Charity with St. Vincent.
