CWCIT launches lecture series on Vincentian response to poverty

CWCIT lecture logo
In collaboration with Matthieu Brejon Lavergnée, DePaul's new Dennis H. Holtschneider, C.M., Chair in Vincentian Studies, the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology will kick off its 2019-20 lecture series, "Poverty: Vincentian Responses around the World," this fall. 

The first lecture is set for Oct. 10 and features The Rev. Guillermo Campuzano, C.M. He will deliver the keynote, "Vinny Goes to the UN: What Must Be Done for the World's Poor?" All are welcome to attend.

As St. Vincent de Paul said, “Go to the poor: you will find God.” This charism is lived out across the globe in the work done by the hundreds of groups - both lay and religious - that make up the International Vincentian Family. The lecture series aims to highlight some of that work and those individuals.
