Established in the Haut-Vaugirard district for more than 150 years, and having always exercised great attention there to the Parisian youth but also to the young provincials coming to be formed in Paris, the community of the Religious of Saint-Vincent de Paul has for founder Father Jean-Léon Le Prevost whose home bears his name.

Devotion to Our Lady of La Salette

September 19, 1846, the Virgin Mary appeared on the mountain of La Salette to two children.

At the same time, the first Brothers of St-Vincent de Paul, the founder, Jean-Léon Le Prevost and the first brothers, Clément Myionnet and Maurice Maignen, began their work of evangelizing the workers and the poor.

Mr. Le Prevost has always been convinced thatthe appearance of La Salette was a confirmation of the charism of the nascent Congregation and it was only natural that devotion to Our Lady of La Salette was spread throughout our institute.

In the last years of his life, after his priestly ordination, Monsieur le Prevost liked to call himself a Priest of La Salette.
