A special welcome to all the extended families and visitors to St. Vincent’s during this Christmas season. We are blessed by your presence here with us. If there is any way we can serve you, please let us know. The parish office will be open Monday – Thursday both this week and next from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exception of closing at noon on Thursday, Dec. 24th.
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 comfortably full. There will be plenty of room at the other Masses.
Our Christmas Collection is for the retired priests and seminarians. We have 56 seminarians and 28 retired priests so the need is great. One of the seminarians, Paul Wagle is from our parish. Use the envelopes sent by the diocese or those we have in your packets. Thank you in advance for your response to this need.
Consider making a special year-end gift to St. Vincent de Paul Church. The need for your gifts is real. Your year-end gifts carry us through the whole year. Our ministries to the youth, faith formation, and outreach to those in need in our community are all going strong. Help support the great work happening here at St. Vincent’s.
Thank you to Linda Johnson for inscribing the names of the confirmation candidates in their Bibles with calligraphy.
