Calling Council Vincentians

Dear Vincentians:

We are still looking for a couple of Vincentians who would like to be trained to participate on our team of workshop presenters.  We would love to have at least one or two Vincentian from each district. Please think about it.  Is our Lord calling you to reach out to those who serve Him, by assisting to guide them?  This  training will be to present the Ozanam Formation Workshop.  
Please contact us a soon as possible.  We are trying to determine total count of trainees.  You will be trained in July by the Western Regional Formation Chair, Patricia Metrick and you will continue your training by the Los Angeles staff.  The July training is for three consecutive days.  Info: 888-552-7872. 
We truly would love to have you on our team for the Lord.
Blessings,
Catalina Miller Director, Vincentian Services
