The Vincentian History Research Network (VHRN) is a dynamic online forum designed for researchers and scholars on Vincentian topics broadly considered.  The editor for the site is the Rev. Edward R. Udovic, C.M., from the Vincentian Studies Institute of DePaul University. This site is a place to learn about Vincentian resources, share current research projects, ask questions about possible archival and bibliographic resources, announce publications or participation in conferences, and seek grant funding. Members of the VHRN can share in other ways that will support a community of "Vincentian" scholars.  Please feel free to join us!
