*Ozanam Orientation and The Home Visit is required for all Vincentians within one year of joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. If you are a parishioner interested in St. Vincent de Paul or just want to know more about the organization, please feel free to attend Ozanam Orientation to learn more.
Whether you’ve been a Vincentian for two days or two decades, Ozanam Orientation offers you an opportunity to be inspired, informed, refreshed and renewed in what it means to be a member of The Society and how that membership is to be lived in the Conference and everyday life.
The Home Visit
The Home Visit is a very important part of SVdP’s work with its clients. There are specific procedures and guidelines to adhere to as a Home Visitor. In this class, Vincentians will become familiar with the proper way to conduct a Home Visit, from safety protocol to documentation. This part of the day will include an open discussion about home visits.
Serving in Hope Module VII: Our Vincentian Home Visit
This module is about the cultivation of a Vincentian Heart in the context of our encounter with the neighbor, each other, and the communities we serve. The facilitator will take you through Session 1: Loving with a Vincentian Heart and Session 2: Listening with a Vincentian Heart. The Serving in Hope Series is designed specifically for St. Vincent de Paul Conferences and intends to include the practice of silent reflection, discussion and sharing throughout. This class welcomes all levels of Vincentian members, but seasoned members are especially encouraged to attend and renew their Vincentian heart.
