Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week: 1929 centennial celebration, Damascus, Syria

The ongoing tragedy of the collapse of Syria reminds us of the long presence of the Lazaristes and Daughters of Charity in this country. The Vincentiana collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections has recently purchased this photo of the May 1929 celebration in Damascus of the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the French Lazaristes.

  1. I was a student at the Lazaristes school from the late 1940s till 1957. I was an Altar Boy and served the daily Mass of Pere Artistes in this school church.
    Fond memories of my school years and beloved Damascus.
