Between July 15 and 20, 2019, our President General, Renato Lima de Oliveira, will be in New York (USA) where he has a full work schedule.
In his various tasks and visits, President Renato will present an “Activities Report” covering the first three years of the mandate (2016/2019).
The agenda in New York includes meetings with ambassadors, officials at the United Nations, ecclesiastical authorities, members of the Vincentian Coalition and participation in various SSVP events (including the distribution of food to the homeless in Harlem).
Renato Lima stated “I am very happy with this schedule of events that will unfold during my time. This is important for both those individuals who will be visited as well as for the institutional contacts that will be strengthened. As the Rule teaches us, the SSVP should always be open to interact with other entities and organizations, because together we can build a better and more fraternal world.”
During the week, the President General will be accompanied by fellow members, Mike Nizankiewicz (ITVP America 1), Edmund Keane (chairperson of the United Nations team), Pattie Hughes (United Nations team), Ralph Middlecamp (president of the United States National Council) and Dave Barringer (USA National Council CEO).
Surely these visits will be very positive for our Society and so we pray for the success of these meetings and events.
