WANT TO ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY? JOIN US FOR THE 5TH ANNUAL HANDS2SERVE EVENT ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24. What is Hands 2 Serve? Volunteers from churches from around the area partner together in an attitude of service by helping with property clean up, yard work, trash hauling, painting and light carpentry. All of the projects benefit those who cannot do the work themselves and are submitted by local churches, senior centers, city and county police and fire departments.
This year over 10 churches from the Andover, Benton and Towanda area are involved. All volunteers will meet here at St. Vincent at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 24.. If you are aware of a project, or would like more information, please contact Michele in the parish office.

Pope Francis offered all of us some words of encouragement this past week: "Whenever a hand reaches out to do good or to show the love of Christ, to dry a tear or bring comfort to the lonely, to show the way to one who is lost or to console a broken heart, to help the fallen or to teach those thirsting for truth, to forgive or to offer a new start in God -- know that the Pope is at your side and supports you," he told the bishops. "He puts his hand on your own, a hand wrinkled with age, but by God’s grace still able to support and encourage," said Francis.
Blessing of Pets is this Sunday, Oct. 4 at 1:00 in the courtyard.
