The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia is excited to be hosting an Orientación Ozanam at Holy Innocents Parish, 1337 E. Hunting Park Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19124, on Saturday, November 1, 2014, beginning at 8:30 am and ending at 4:00 pm. Presenting the sessions for SVDP-Phila will be Margarita Galindo, Vice President for Hispanic Involvement for the National Council of the United States, and Rev. Mr. Emilio Ferrer-Soto, deacon for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Indiana.
Orientación Ozanam is the version of the Ozanam Orientation in Spanish. Ozanam Orientation is a treasure-filled presentation for members of the Society of St Vincent de Paul in which they learn the rich history of the Society’s founders and key elements that lead us to better serve people in need through person-to-person interaction, most often in their own homes. The Society’s founders thought it was vital that its members understand the gospel foundations for what they do and to appreciate the fellowship witnessed in the first disciples, so the orientation helps its members grow through spirituality and friendship into a life of service.
