High tea and Vincentian history
In honor of Saint Louise's Feast Day on March 15 and Women's History Month, enjoy a chance to connect with fellow DePaul women in a fun atmosphere. While you enjoy tea, scones and other treats, learn more about Saint Louise de Marillac, who was inspired by Saint Vincent de Paul to serve sick, poor, elderly and illiterate persons, including prisoners. Born in the late 1500s, Saint Louise overcame an unstable home life, frail health and the death of her husband to form the Daughters of Charity. At the event, Sister Betty Ann McNeil, D.C., one of DePaul's Vincentian Scholars-in-Residence, will use her expertise in Vincentian tradition to show participants how Saint Louise remains relevant to modern women who deal with leadership and fiscal challenges, organizational growth, and creation of outreach programs and services to further the university's mission.
Participants will take a moment to reflect on life and relationships, connect with women colleagues and gain a deeper understanding of St. Louise in the context of their own lives.
DWN events are open to all full- and part-time university faculty and staff, so please join us in this special celebration. Sign up today for this free event and encourage a DePaul friend to attend with you!
