Our Speakers

Mayor Rawlings will provide an overview of the state of homelessness in Dallas as well as share with us City and County plans to eradicate this social injustice. Bishop Burns will provide the perspective and position of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops on homelessness, in addition to Catholic Social Teaching on this issue. After the remarks of Bishop Burns and Mayor Rawlings, questions and comments from the audience will be taken.

About Our Benefitting Organizations

Since opening in May 2008, The Bridge has evolved into an internationally recognized model for homeless recovery, establishing and leveraging key partnerships to ensure its guests have access to a variety of services that are essential to their comeback from homelessness all coordinated at one facility. The Bridge plays a significant role in North Texas continuum of care for homeless recovery services and is the primary partner of the City, Dallas County, and State in supporting this population.  

The Christ the King, St. Vincent de Paul Conference, compassionately offers assistance to meet emergency and basic needs of those who are suffering. Their assistance often prevents a person in crisis from becoming homeless, which then can lead to a path of self-sufficiency. 

Please reserve your FREE tickets today as seating is limited.

Please consider becoming an Underwriter of this event.  All Underwriters, and a guest, are invited to a private reception with Bishop Burns and Mayor Rawlings from 6:00 – 7:30 pm in the Sky Lounge at the Community Center immediately prior to the event.  Hors d’oeuvres, desserts, beer and wine will be served.  Contact Juli Harrison at 214 207-1001 or jharri2092@aol.com with questions.

Organizer

Christ The King Church Conference of St. Vincent de Paul

The St. Vincent de Paul Conference at Christ the King’s mission is to serve the poor in our area by demonstrating our love for them by visiting with them in their homes, listening to their problems and needs and helping them if we can by providing advice, connecting them with community resources, advocating for them and, where appropriate, providing short-term financial assistance, for example, by paying rent to forestall eviction and homelessness or by paying an electric bill to keep the lights and air conditioning on in the heat of summer.
