On Thursday 16th February 2023, twelve volunteers took part at a Vincentian Values Today (VIVAT) training at the “Stop & Blether @ the Listening Heart” project in Parkhead, Glasgow – just down the road from Celtic Football Ground. The project has been researched and set up as a collaborative venture by the Daughters of Charity Mission Heart in Scotland. It involves the wider Vincentian Family, affiliates, local parishioners, local agencies, local clergy, Religious and many others. This new drop-in project is a listening and pastoral service which also offers links with specialist sources of help. The running of the project has many areas of responsibility – practical, legal, financial and so on and these have been assigned to to various task force groups who are being supported by Daughters of Charity Services. Assessment and Evaluation will be ongoing , and the rest is in the hands of God’s Divine Providence. Tuesday 21st February 2023 sees the project opening its doors for the first time.
