Workshops, Retreats, & Events

From the time of the Society’s inception, our founders relied upon others for direction and formation in the spirit of St. Vincent. In that same spirit, the Cincinnati District Council offers formation and training for our Conference Members and Officers to deepen our knowledge of the Society and our spirituality; to improve the sensitivity, quality and efficacy of our service to those in need; and to increase our awareness of available resources.
