Vacation Bible School is a week-long summer program intended to serve the parish families with song, dance, crafts, theater, snacks and learning about our faith. Our dates are June 10-14, 2013, from 9:00 am to noon.
Thank you to all who have expressed their desire to help this program! We still need lots of volunteers to make this a fun week for our kids—please consider helping. Want to find out more? Contact our VBS Leader, Michelle Lillie, to see where your talents can shine!
During the month of May we are working to stock the pantries for summer at Mobile Loaves & Fishes (mlf.org) and Hill Country Community Ministries (hccm.org). Because the summer months—when bills run high and children don’t have access to school lunches—put extra stress on families, food pantries tend to run close to bare. We need your help to stock the shelves!
Please drop your food donations into the baskets in the church narthex now through May 31st. Suggested items include canned tuna, canned meals (such as Raviolios and SpaghettiOs), canned vegetables, peanut butter and jelly, pinto beans, cereal and bars of soap. Thank you so much for your support and prayers!
Congratulations to the St. Vincent de Paul Confirmation class of 2013, who received the sacrament on May 2nd in a mass celebrated by Bishop Joe Vásquez.
Filled with photos and video from our December 29th dedication mass, it's time to see them in person! Sets will be sold after masses during the month of May for $20 (please bring cash or make checks out to "SVdP"). Stop by the table after mass and get yours. Of course, they make great gifts, too.
Whether you pre-ordered or not, we have plenty! Sets will also be available in the parish office (Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm).
We look forward to one day having all the beautiful sacred art pieces in place in our new church to enrich our masses and celebrations of sacraments. Please take some time to look through our sacred art brochure and use it as an aid to picture the future of our St. Vincent de Paul Church. A great deal of study, research, passion and inspiration has been invested in these pieces of liturgical art. We hope that you and your families will be inspired as well.
