Society of St. Vincent de Paul Hosts Its Inaugural Spanish Ozanam Orientation

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston hosted its first Spanish Ozanam Orientation, an introduction to the Society’s mission, values, and history for new members. The gathering marked a resounding success, drawing an enthusiastic group of 16 new Vincentians who are part of an exciting Conference revitalization process at Assumption Catholic Church.


The orientation was not just about acquainting individuals with the Society’s principles. It fostered a sense of a shared purpose–growing in holiness through person-to-person service for our communities in need. Through dynamic discussions, our new Vincentians were informed and inspired, igniting a passion for service and a continuous desire for spiritual growth. Each participant had the opportunity to contribute and connect, leaving with a renewed commitment to the Society’s mission.


Hosting Ozanam Orientations in Spanish perfectly aligns with the values upheld by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, particularly Rule 1.6, which emphasizes the importance of adapting to a changing world. The Society’s commitment to constant renewal and awareness of evolving societal conditions requires outreach efforts that cater to diverse cultural backgrounds.


By offering orientations in Spanish, the Society ensures inclusivity and accessibility, reaching out to communities that may face language barriers to participation. The Spanish Ozanam Orientation sets the stage for a promising journey ahead as the Society embraces serving all in need.
