We are happy to announce that we will be having our Annual Meeting of Members (formerly called “Presidents Meeting”) on Saturday, October 17, 2015, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, at the Church on the Mall in Plymouth Meeting. The meeting provides a great opportunity to meet and interact with fellow Vincentians and to learn more about some changes for the coming year. We’re excited to be able to have the facilities at the Church-on-the-Mall since it is relatively centrally located, very near a Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange (Norristown exit) and has ample parking.
To learn more about the Church on the Mall, please open this link.
The meeting will be kept fairly short so that more people will be able to attend, but we will be including important content that should prove valuable to nearly every Vincentian in the five-county Archdiocesan Council area. More information will be posted here as it becomes available. We look forward to seeing as many Vincentians as possible that day.
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.
