The 2017 Western Region Conference, hosted by the SVdP Portland Council May 26-28, was a great success. A record number of Vincentians attended from 10 different states, many visiting the Portland area for the first time, as well as local Conference members. The theme this year, “Let’s Help the Homeless and Rediscover Ourselves”, was explored in Ozanam training, workshops, and business meetings. Our Mobile Kitchen was on site for tours and program questions. The Portland Council held a special dinner reception on Friday evening at The Grotto, complete with guided tours, offering a spiritual and beautiful setting for a peaceful end to a busy day. *Photos courtesy of Christine Krikliwy.
