Our Annual Fund provides for the upkeep of our buildings. Pledge cards are being mailed out. This year we plan to accomplish a number of projects such as tile the floor in the catacombs, replace the wallpaper in the Worship Space with tile, replace the lights and tile above the south side of the Gathering Space, update technology where needed as well as accomplish a number of other smaller projects. With all these projects we plan to leverage your gifts with the time and talents of maintenance staff and parishioners to get twice as much value out of your gifts. We also hope to pay-off most of the remainder of the loan for the Heating and Air replacement for the north part of the building. To support the Annual Fund, please return the pledge card or your gift during the next couple of weeks. Thank you in advance for your support that makes St. Vincent’s such a beautiful and welcoming place.


Small Group Sign-ups are this weekend. Feel free to invite anyone you know to join a small group with you. Consider what small groups may be helpful for you and also for people you know.Small groups grow faith and connect people to real community. We have groups focused on the book, “Resisting Happiness” and many other groups focused on everything from Self-Help to Common Interests to Service/Community to Faith Building groups. Call the office if you have a friend to add to the small groups.
