It’s not too late to sign up for the men's Christ Renews His Parish retreat, which will be held on October 25th and 26th. This is a powerful time of prayer and fellowship that you don’t want to miss.
More volunteers are needed, and donations are accepted and welcomed. If you would like to assist in any of these ways, please contact Katherine Park at 817-980-3609 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Victor Mejia at 512-586-7550.
Traditionally, November is a special time to remember our deceased loved ones. With November 1 being the Solemnity of All Saints, and November 2 being the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls), we commend those who have gone before us to the mercy and love of God.
All of us have experienced the loss of loved ones as well as loss in other ways—health, relationships, jobs. Many are suffering and long for support. To help with this, we invite any of you who would like to assist those who are struggling to come to a special gathering on Thursday, October 30, at 6:30 pm. We will meet in the Family Alcove of the church and share thoughts, stories and ideas of how to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters. Please join us.
Also, with All Souls Day approaching, we invite you to bring any pictures or mementos of your departed loved ones to the parish office so that they can be arranged for a special display in the church throughout the month of November. The Book of the Names of the Dead will be placed in the narthex this weekend (10/25 & 26) in which you can write the names of your loved ones as well. This book will be blessed at all of the masses on November 2.
Sacred art is art created solely for the Eucharist, and its presence in the liturgy leads us from seeing and hearing…to contemplation…to worship. Sacred art makes visible to our senses the invisible beauty of God’s love for the world through color, light, line and form.
The sacred paintings, mosaics, stained glass and sculptures—in addition to the vestments, vessels and liturgical furnishings—that have been so thoughtfully and prayerfully chosen for our worship space are intended to enrich our masses and celebrations of sacraments—to take us deeper into communion with God.
The faith community of St. Vincent de Paul has been richly blessed by many sacrificial donations from parishioners that have allowed us to install the gorgeous pieces that already adorn our sanctuary. Our genuine and heartfelt thanks go to each donor. We recognize these as gifts of love for our Lord and humbly accept them with gratitude.
We look forward to one day having all the beautiful sacred art pieces in place in our church to enrich our masses and celebrations of sacraments. Please take some time to look through the following lists of still-available liturgical art:
Sponsoring the flowers that adorn the Church during weekend liturgies or the Chapel during Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays can be such a loving way to honor someone in your life or to celebrate a special event. To reserve a date for sponsoring the flowers in either of these locations, please contact Shirley in the parish office (email@example.com).
• During weekend Masses in the main sanctuary: $65
• During Friday Exposition in the Chapel: $25
