NKY History Hour: A Centennial Celebration with St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky
Join Karen Zengel, Executive Director of Northern Kentucky St. Vincent de Paul, July 12 on Zoom to hear about the evolution and growth of this important outreach who served 44,000 people in NKY last year alone.
Behringer-Crawford Museum has been bringing Northern Kentucky history into peoples homes via Zoom since May of 2020. Introduced as a way for people to connect during the global pandemic, NKY History Hour has featured authors, scholars, historians and more sharing their knowledge and love for the past with their community. As Behringer-Crawford approaches its 100th episode, another local nonprofit, The Northern Kentucky Council of St. Vincent de Paul celebrates a centenary milestone of its own; one hundred years of serving neighbors in need.
Formally recognized as an operating ministry in the Diocese of Covington in 1923, NKSVDP provides financial assistance and basic needs for those who are struggling to make ends meet. Join Karen Zengel, Executive Director of NKSVDP, July 12 to hear about the evolution and growth of this important outreach who served 44,000 people in NKY last year alone.
