formation & Training

From the time of the Society’s inception, our founders relied upon others for direction and formation in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. In that same spirit, the SVdP Georgia Council offers formation and training opportunities for our Vincentian Conference Members and Officers to advance in holiness of life, and to improve the sensitivity, quality and efficacy of their service to neighbors in need. Our hope is to also increase awareness of available resources for members in their respective roles.
