Twenty-three of the thirty Vincentian Lay Missionaries from the United States met in Chicago on “All Saints / All Souls Weekend” (October 31-Noveember 2, 2008) to deepen their bonds of community and mission as they participated in their annual retreat together. An accompanying video features a look at all thirty missionaries. The retreat was led by VLM Lay Coordinator Christy Leming with Vincentian advisers Sr. Mary Beth Kubera, D.C and Fr. Aidan R. Rooney, C.M. Members of the VLM-USA began in 2006 with three missionaries in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, and now work in two missions in Ethiopia (Bahir Dar and Jimma) and in Thigio, Kenya.
