Eucharistic Minister training is this Sunday, January 13 at 12:00 noon in the Ville. We will have a light luncheon and the training will follow. This training is done by the diocese so you will get your official certification. We always need more ministers and we want them to be trained by the diocese. So I am inviting new ministers to come and attend. The qualifications to be a Eucharistic Minister are to be in good standing with the Church and willing to serve. I extend a special invitation to youth who have been confirmed to be a part of this ministry.
Our January Life Event is about Growth in our Spiritual Journey and will be Sunday, January 27th (everyone) and Wed. January 30th (adults only). We will focus on our spiritual journey as a whole to help you understand how to better work with God’s grace, tips on prayer and how to deal with the ups and downs of the spiritual journey. In case you are wondering, there are no NFL playoff games that weekend as it is the break before the Super Bowl. Sign up now in the Gathering Space or online.
Gluten Free Hosts (or at least very low gluten) are available for those who need them. Talk to Teresa before or after Mass to learn the process for using them at St. Vincent’s.
For those who are Homebound and not able to come to Mass, we have ministers who take communion to them. Please contact the office so we can bring you communion. I also visit and anoint the homebound on the first Fridays of the month.
Hospital visits: I’m glad to visit parishioners in the hospitals. However, you have to let us know you are in the hospital and would like a visit. The HIPPA privacy rules prevent hospitals from contacting us without your explicit permission so we need to hear from you.
