Selected Comments from Trip Participants

  • "I came back with a renewed sense of knowing St. Vincent as a person. It makes me approach my work with greater appreciation of what DePaul is all about."

  • "I learned a great deal, and fell I did benefit as a person and an employee."

  • "I loved everything but was especially interested in walking where Vincent walked and feeling such a sense of his greatness everywhere we went."

  • "I most enjoyed the fact that we saw so much in one brief trip, and that the thread of St. Vincent's life provided the story, or spine, for the tour."

  • "For long time staff, the trip provided an incredible opportunity to obtain meaning to our mission."

  • "I thought we bonded well with each other and strengthened each other's motivation to keep up the good work at DePaul."

  • "The trip built a tremendous sense of community, and I think as many DePaul people as possible should have the experience."

  • "I have already urged colleagues who are committed to the Vincentian mission to attend when offered."

  • "I was very moved by the Vincentian sites-they were beyond my expectations."
