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:

November 1: “Using Communication to Better Serve our Neighbors”

Many times when neighbors come to us for help, they are in crisis and our interactions can be challenging.  In this session, we will share communication tools that will be helpful in creating relationships with our neighbors as well as enabling us to be more effective in our assistance

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.

Walking With Our Neighbors:
Going Beyond the Home Visit

Saturday, October 26
9:00AM - Noon
Church of the Nativity of Our Lord
5935 Pandora Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio 45213

Have you ever wondered how to help a neighbor walk along the path to greater self-reliance, but were unsure about how to do that and what might be involved in an ongoing-relationship?

Vincentians who make a personal investment in helping neighbors change their lives often find that they, the Vincentians, are also changed along the way.

At this workshop we will share what we have learned from Cincinnati District Vincentians who have personal experience in developing relationships with their neighbors.  But since neither they nor we have all the answers, we hope that you will come prepared to bring your own experiences and ideas into the discussion.

Together we will explore how we might identify promising neighbors, determine the kinds of help to offer, and evaluate approaches that may work better than others.

The workshop is ideal for Vincentians who want to learn more about systemic change and how to help a neighbor make changes to become more self-sufficient.

Please register in advance by Friday, October 18.  Click here to register via email or phone Don Gloeckler at 513-345-1767.  Please provide your name and conference.
