2nd SSVP Youth International Meeting, June 2018 in Spain

by | Jan 30, 2018 | News, Society of St. Vincent de Paul

General theme of the meeting: Young Vincentians as leaders of the present and the future of the SSVP.

Bible reflection: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.” (John 15, 16)

An important part of the first stage has already been covered, sending the invitation letters at the beginning of October. All the National Councils, and especially the continental coordinators for Youth, should have already received their official invitation.

In order to facilitate exchanges between the participants and the organizing team, an email address has been created for this: youth-salamanca@ssvpglobal.org

May Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati enlighten the Vincentian Youth and our II International SSVP Youth Meeting!
