In March VinFormation celebrates the Feast of St. Louise de Marillac with two new presentations, based on the article ‘God Wants First The Heart And Then The Work:’ Louise De Marillac And Leadership In The Vincentian Tradition by Louise Sullivan D.C.

With short vignettes listed below think about topics such as … Vincent and Louise a reluctant friendship, at first; as collaborators, not carbon copies; Louise as bridge between social classes; Feminine tenderness, plus leadership and organization: a winning combination; Trusting others, not micro-managing; Creativity and risk-taking

See the “Table of Contents” of these two presentations.
