First Friday Formation

12:00 Noon – 1:30PM
Liz Carter Outreach Center
1125 Bank St.
Cincinnati, OH 45214

Bring a lunch and join your fellow Vincentians the first Friday of each month, as together we share our thoughts and ideas about topics related to Vincentian Life and Spirituality. 

Come every month or come when you can.  Each month we will explore a different topic of interest:

December 6: A Gift for Always: Your Vincentian Vocation 

Gather with other Vincentians to reflect on our vocation as Vincentians.  We will gather to enjoy each other’s friendship and come to a new appreciation of the action of the Holy Spirit that led each of us to become Vincentians.  Festive snacks will be served!

Please let us know in advance when you will be attending.  Click here to register via email or phone Sunnie Lain at 513-345-4966.

Ozanam Orientation

Saturday, January 11, 2020
9:00am to 3:00pm
Lunch will be provided

St. James the Greater
White Oak
3565 Hubble Road
Cincinnati, OH 45247

What do we mean when we refer to “Vincentian spirituality?”  Why are home visits so important to our ministry?  What does the future hold for St. Vincent de Paul?

The Ozanam Orientation covers the essential elements of what it means to be part of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.  All Vincentians are required to attend an Ozanam Orientation at least once, whether you are…

A new or prospective member looking for an introduction to SVDP,
A current member wanting to understand Vincentian life and service more thoroughly, or
A seasoned Vincentian wanting to deepen your experience of the Society.

If you have never attended the Orientation, or if it has been a long time since you last attended, join us January 11.

Register by January 7: Click here to register via email or phone Don Gloeckler at 513-345-1767.  Please provide your name and conference.
