Vincentian Heritage is a peer-reviewed ejournal dedicated to promoting a living interest in the historical and spiritual heritage of the wide-ranging Vincentian family under the patronage of Saint Vincent de Paul (1581-1660) and Saint Louise de Marillac (1591–1660). Groups in this tradition include the Congregation of the Mission (founded 1625), the Company of the Daughters of Charity (founded 1633), the Ladies Charity (founded 1617), the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (founded 1833), and the Federation of the Sisters of Charity of the Vincentian-Setonian tradition (established 1947), as well as other religious and lay organizations and all those who work within educational, health care communities, social outreach and other ministries in the Vincentian tradition. It is published bi-annually under the direction of the Vincentian Studies Institute, Division of Mission and Ministry, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois.
