In 2013, DePaul’s Office of Mission & Values (OMV) commissioned a survey of “unaffiliated lay Vincentians,” young adults, ages 18-35, who have had a formative experience in the Vincentian mission either as a student or post-graduate volunteer at a Vincentian institution. Working with Dr. Jessica Werner, Director of Lay Vincentian Missionaries, Dr. Scott Kelley, assistant vice president for Vincentian Scholarship for OMV, shares the survey’s results and what they mean for the larger Vincentian Family.
