“I feel like I’m ‘living the Gospel’!”
Eoghan, a SVP B-Attitude member
Named after the Beatitudes found in Mt 5:30, our newest apostolate encourages a focus on embracing internally what our 14-18 year olds already practice externally in their Vincentian works of charity. It gives our older teenagers a fuller sense of what it means to live as a disciple despite the pressure that surrounds them. ‘Learn’, ‘live’ and ‘love’ are the 3 key principles that our B-Attitude-ers live by. The play on words of ‘B-Attitude’ emphasises that a maturation of our spiritual lives as Christians results in an attitude rooted in our ‘BEing’ more than our ‘DOing’.
This apostolate works in much the same way as Youth SVP [link to Youth SVP], being available in schools and parishes. SVP B-Attitude makes for an awesome post-Confirmation programme for any parish that has an adult(s) willing to supervise the group. We also think that this would be a great addition to any home-schooling community’s faith-education routine.
Resources for 20 Individual Members:
Each non-office holding SVP B-Attitude member receives either a drawstring bag or t-shirt and a members booklet. USB slap-wrist flashdrives are issued to leaders/members holding office in the group (there are 5 officer roles in each group).
Resources for Group formation:
Our online training & formation package aims to bridge transferrable life skills and works of charity with a living faith, as was demonstrated by St. Vincent de Paul and Bl. Frédéric Ozanam. SVP B-Attitude serves to challenge, through formation and action, our young Vincentians to greater acts of faith, hope and charity from a deeper place of faith within themselves. The whole world can access Module 1 for free, and Modules 2-5 are available as a resource to SVP B-Attitude groups. Log in as a guest to check it out on http://svp-b-attitudelife.online/
Start-up fees (includes resources mentioned above) of £150 & p+p
Annual renewal fee of £25
