Home Visit 101:

Home Visit 101, a foundational offering open to all Vincentians, builds on the brief home visit section in the Ozanam Orientation. This introductory session, created specifically for St. Louis area Vincentians, covers home visit basics, the spirituality of the home visit, the why of the home visit, the how of the home visit, and self-care. Sessions are held via Zoom until after the pandemic.

Home Visit 201:

Introduced in 2020, Home Visit 201 builds on Home Visit 101. After a brief 101 review, 201 included more in-depth information on the home visit approach, a home visit simulation, and details about Council programs and paperwork. It is highly recommended that Vincentians attend the Home Visit 101 first. Due to its interactive nature, the full session is on hold until after the pandemic. Individual sections of the session are periodically offered on Zoom.

The Northwest District includes 19 St. Vincent de Paul Conferences spread over three counties (St. Charles, Lincoln & Warren).  Conferences are organized locally (usually with a Catholic Church), where Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice.  The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served, because in them Vincentians see the face of Christ.
