Hello everyone!

The second annual SVdP International Youth Videoconference is coming!  In two weeks, onFriday, September 26 (Saturday, September 27 for some of you) at 8:30 p.m. in time zone UTC-6, we will be reuniting via the internet!  Last year, we had a wonderful time talking about our service, our faith and our Vincentian activities with people from France, the Philippines, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United States.  I am looking forward to hearing what your groups have been doing and how you have been living out the Vincentian call during the past year.

We will be using the Zoom program online (  You will find more information in the attached document about the computer equipment needed and how to use Zoom.  It is very easy and I do not think there were any problems last year.  It is recommended, though not required, that you have an English translator present if needed.

It will be wonderful to see you again!  If you personally are not able to make it, please ask another of your members to join!

Please let me know by Monday, September 22 if you plan to participate.  The participation link for the videoconference will be sent via email during the week before the meeting.

Thank you and please email me if you have any questions!

Peace and Blessings,

Gayle Westfahl
