DECLARATION OF REPUDIATION

Cyclists attack in New York, USA

The Council General International (CGI) of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP) stands in solidarity with the American people about the terrorism action that killed eight people and left several injured, this week in New York.

“Terrorism is deplorable, coward and nefarious, violently affecting innocent people”, said brother Renato Lima de Oliveira (16th President General).

The international board of the CGI entreats that Jesus Christ, our Peace, reign in the hearts of men and women, and that we can build a more fraternal world. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you” (John 14:27).
