Nowadays, most of the “Scheppers schools” can be visited with internet. Besides, there also exists an international website Victor Scheppers.
The 125th birthday
2001-2002 is a year in Belgium with a few commemorations. In the celebration of the 24th June 2001, in the” Sint-Rombouts cathedral”, Cardinal Danneels called Scheppers and his followers early examples of voluntary devotion for fellow-men.
He made a bridge between the affection of the young priest and the necessity of unmeasured and unpaid devotion in the recent society. In that way V. Scheppers and the works of the Brothers and sisters was actualized again for some time.
Although, only but a few considered the celebration of the 125th birthday of the decease of Vincentius of Mechelen as a motive to stay in the cathedral during a sunny Sunday morning.
At the beginning of the 21th century, all Scheppersschools in Belgium had their own website. Even in Italy, Argentina and Uruguay, our schools are on the internet. In Africa, the Brothers have connection with internet, but they don’t have a website of their own.
In 2004 they started an international website Victor Scheppers.
