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.
The Four Six Nine Ministry strives to offer opportunities for young adults ages 18-25 to grow in their faith while connecting with like-minded individuals. We meet every Sunday from 8:00-9:30 pm in the St. Vincent de Paul Catacombs (lower level). Each week will include different activities such as Bible studies, social events, and volunteer opportunities. We are excited to start this ministry and encourage all young adults to come check us out! For more information, please contact Katherine Cederberg- 469 Outreach Minister:
Growing Faith-Filled Kids: 4th Sunday of Advent
This Christmas start a new tradition by adding a special stocking stuffer to your child’s stocking. Write a letter to him/her telling about all the special things he/she did this year and the many ways in which your child has grown. Remind your child of the gifts he/she has and the many ways your child has blessed you.
Growing Faith-Filled Kids: 3rd Sunday of Advent
Advent is half way over! In today’s reading we hear John the Baptist (Jesus’ cousin) telling people to get ready for the coming of the Christ. Remind your child that every kind deed we do for others, Jesus counts as done for Him. A fun tradition for the last half of Advent is the tradition of Advent Angels. Draw names of each person in the family & then do secret good deeds for the person whose name you chose. On Christmas Eve everyone tries to guess who their Advent Angel was.

A Blessed Christmas to each and every person who comes to St. Vincent’s. My wish is that you may be touched by the peace and joy which comes from Christ being with us. May Christ’s presence fill your heart and your life. The office will be open with the exception of Christmas Day if there is anything we can do for you.
Our Christmas Eve Masses are at 4:00, 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. and the Christmas Day Mass is at 10:00 a.m. The only Mass that will be overflowing is the 4:00 p.m. Mass Christmas Eve. I expect the 6:00 p.m. Mass to be full, but there should be room for everyone in the Church. There will be plenty of room in the other Masses.
