Day of Recollection with Father Greg Adolph

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocesan Council of San Diego and the San Diego Diocesan Office for Social Ministry are proud to co-host “400 Years of the Vincentian Charism,” a day of recollection with Fr. Greg Adolf. Fr. Greg Adolf will share his love of the gospel and bring it to life. He promises to shed light on the Vincentian charism as it is lived still today in our church. Bishop John Dolan will celebrate Mass. This free event takes place Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. Complementary breakfast and lunch are included. All are invited, especially those who do not work directly with the Society. Harden not your hearts!
