St. Vincent de Paul must Move Again
We learned we must move again. We just arrived on the Prineville Campus in May, site of the old Woodgrain Mill, where we were welcomed and made to feel right at home. However, their largest tenant, Central Oregon Processing, is expanding their CBD extraction operation, hiring 60 more people, and renting the train shed we use as a “drive-thru”. Train carloads of ethanol will be arriving next to where our guests park. Our presence here will not be compatible with their expanded operation. Parris Real Estate, the site manager, will compensate us for our improvements and help us relocate.
We are searching for a new home. We need 3,000 SF of temperature-controlled space on a concrete slab to support our food storage. Please let us know if you know of a suitable space. We will need to be moved by fall. Please pray that we find a new home.
Orientation in July
Would you like to learn more about our Vincentian Mission and Spirituality? If so, please join us for a one-day Ozanam Orientation, Saturday, July 8, 10 AM to 4 PM, at St. Francis Parish, 2450 NE 27th in Bend.
