Welcome to this CRRA research guide on St. Vincent de Paul, the Vincentians, and other institutes that follow his rule. It will link you to electronic collections of Vincentian materials online, as well as to links that will search the Catholic Portal for Vincentian texts and subjects, as well as materials on related orders.
We hope that you will find this research guide useful in getting at the wealth of materials presented online by CRRA member libraries and in the Catholic Portal.

Loyola Marymount University, formerly Loyola University of Los Angeles, traces its history back to Vincentian roots: Loyola College, the 1911 beginning of the institution, was the successor to St. Vincent's College, a Vincentian institution which was the very first college in Los Angeles, founded in 1865. The Vincentians are still involved in Los Angeles, running St. John's in Camarillo, the Catholic seminary for the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
