THE FOUNDRESS


The foundress of the Congregation “Servants of the Visitation” is Mother Vincenza Minet, born on March 9, 1929 in Scomigo in the province of Treviso, to Vincent and Pierina Maso, fervent Christians. Sixth of eight children. Her family was poor, but always open to share bread or polenta with those who knocked on the door in search of food. Even as a child, she was certain that she wanted to be a nun. At the age of ten, on July 18, 1939, she began the journey of religious life among the Daughters of Saint Paul. First in Alba, then in other houses of the congregation, up to Rome, in Albano where, at the age of 20, she was admitted to the Regina Apostolorum Hospital. Here, after her recovery, she worked as Nurse, Head Nurse and then Director, contributing with all of herself to the development of the structure. For about thirty years Mother Vicenta served the sick of the said Hospital and for many years the Sisters of the community as Mother Provincial, until the time when her history began to coincide with that of the congregation of the “Servants of the Visitation” which, by the Lord’s providential will, was called to exist through her.
Currently Mother Vincenza Minet lives in the Mother House of the Institute in Santa Marinella (RM) and continues to edify and spiritually support the Congregation through prayer, messages every morning, letters, articles in the periodical “Magnificat”, testimony, etc …
