Stewardship Renewal

Stewardship – “The Joy of the Gospel”

Our stewardship theme this year truly describes the ministries and programs at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.  As we begin our renewal, we ask that each of you, as good stewards, and members of our parish family recognize your gifts and share them with others.  The commitment of parishioners to live stewardship as a way of life allows us to continue to grow as a parish family.

We ask that each family in our parish complete this form.   The annual renewal allows you the opportunity to share your time, talent and treasure by exploring new ministries.  It also provides us with current addresses, phone numbers and email addresses.  New on our form this year is a spot to indicate if you would like to be notified of deaths in our parish.  To renew online, click here  and go to Servant Information tab.  You can also make secure online contributions through our online giving.   Contributions can be made by debit or credit card and you can choose the frequency of your gift (weekly, semi-monthly, etc.)    We ask that all families return their stewardship forms by the weekend of Nov. 22/23 to save us mailing costs.

Growing Faith-Filled Kids

 

Growing Faith-Filled Kids: All Souls Day

November 2nd  is All Souls Day. A day we remember our departed loved ones.  It is a day when you can look at old photos of family members who have passed and tell your children stories about them.  It is also a day when some visit the graves of their deceased family and friends and perhaps take flowers, burn a candle in their memory and say a prayer for them.

 

Growing Faith-Filled Kids: All Saints Day

 

This week we celebrate Halloween (which initially was a Christian custom) followed by All Saints Day. Tell your children that the people who have died and are in heaven are called saints. It is a good time to remember that our loved ones in heaven are now saints. Maybe you could talk about the loved one who has passed and recall the goodness of his/her life. It might be fun to check out “Catholic Online” to see if there is a saint with whom your child shares a name. Research the saints and choose one as a patron saint for your family. Another great idea to do as a family would be the Pumpkin Prayer! To see this activity, click here or check out the "A Trayful of Saints" activity here.
