In October of 1920 the Saint Vincent Seminary Mission Society was formed. The society was a prayer league consisting of groups of between five and ten seminarians. They pledged to recite the Rosary and offer their daily Holy Communions and all their spiritual benefits for the good of the missions. Each group was responsible for this for a one-week period on a rotating basis.
