Bridges Out of Poverty is an approach to better understand persons of all walks of life and how they interact with one another. The Workshops sponsored by The Society of St Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia include a review of the material presented by the joint effort of Aha! Process and the National Council of the United States of America for the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
The Workshop serves not as an all-inclusive training session but presents participants with an overview into the origins of poverty-like circumstances and some of the obstacles of breaking out of the confinement that poverty brings with it.
The next session will be held at Sacred Heart Parish, Royersford (near the Montgomery/Chester County border), PA, on Saturday, June 27, 2015, from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. Sign up via this link. You can check out more information about Sacred Heart Parish (and how to get there) via this link.
Later this summer, on August 1, 2015, SVDP-Philadelphia will sponsor another session at St Katherine of Siena Parish, Northeast Philadelphia, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. You can sign up for the session via this link. You can get more information (and directions to) St Katherine Parish via this link.
We look forward to seeing you at either session.
