Worcester, August 28, 2019 – Every year, Vincentians from across the country come together to participate in St. Vincent de Paul’s National Assembly, where a variety of speakers and workshops provide insight on topics that relate to the mission of the Society and share best practices.
The 2019 Assembly “Vincentians moving Mountains” was held on August 28–31 in Denver, Colorado, at the Gaylord Rockies & Convention Center. Keynote speakers include Most Reverend Donald J. Hying, National Episcopal Advisor, and John Angotti, a full-time music missionary.
Bayard Inc. stands behind the Society and its mission of meeting the community’s basic needs enabling human dignity and integrity through donations of clothing, food, and other necessities. It was an honor to once again be able to give back to the Society on the occasion of the Assembly. Bayard had a booth on-site showcasing spiritual resources from our different trademarks and team members handed out copies of Living with Christ, Living Faith and Living Faith Kids to attendees. Bayard was also very proud to provide all attendees with a special edition of Living with Christ containing the conference prayers and liturgies. More than 1,000 booklets had been printed for the occasion.
