September LIFE Session

A new year of LIFE events begin Sunday, Sept. 20 or Wednesday, Sept 23.

“I am a Feather on the Breath of God.” This quote from, Hildegarde Van Bingen, expresses the life of a person guided by the Holy Spirit. It is the overarching theme of our LIFE events this year. All are invited to walk together as we explore how the Holy Spirit has spoken and still speaks to us in the nitty gritty of our daily lives. A delicious free dinner, worship, fellowship, learning, &  laughter—you’ll find it all at LIFE!

Child care is available after dinner for children ages one, two and three. Older children will enjoy fun activities, crafts, music & learning at their grade level. LIFE is for the whole family and every person at St. Vincent’s.

Sarah Hart will be here for a concert on Friday, August 14th at 7:00. Come and invite your friends and neighbors. There is a lot of room in the Worship Space.  There is a retreat the next day, Saturday for both men and women. Please RSVP for the retreat in the next day or two. I want to thank the St. Vincent de Paul Endowment Fund which has sponsored these two events.

Faith Formation sign-ups continue in August. We have: First Reconciliation/Communion for grades 2-3; Breakfast of Champions for grades 3-5; Confirmation for all High School students that have not been confirmed.  You need to sign-up for all of the above programs.

Besides these programs we have Edge for Middle School students and LifeTeen for High School students (no sign-up necessary). We also have LIFE events each month for everyone young and old in the parish (sign-up each month).  Finally, this fall we will be enhancing the children’s liturgy time for the younger children at Mass.
