A Prayer for Priests by St. Therese of Lisieux
O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
Let Your holy love surround them and
shield them from the world's contagion.
Bless their labors with abundant fruit and
may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.

LENTEN FAITH FORMATION SERIES
“A Meaningful life: How the Cross teaches us the meaning of life”
Scope: To examine the way in which our faith, as compared with our culture, answers the various questions that make up the ultimate question: What is the meaning of life?
Dates and topics:
3/7: Where are we going? Eternal life
3/14: Who am I? Baptismal identity: Priest, prophet, king
3/21: How do I live? Evangelical councils: Poverty, chastity and obedience
4/4: How do I get there? The Sacraments: Participation in the Paschal Mystery
A few videos were shown at the church's recent Liturgical Ministry trainings, and now we are providing the rest of the series for you to view. Following is the first in the series:
Sponsoring the flowers that adorn the church during weekend liturgies or the Alicia Chapel during Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament (on 1st and 3rd 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 liturgies in the main sanctuary: $65
• During Exposition in the Alicia Chapel: $25
The Art and Environment ministry is busy planning for our upcoming season of Lent and Easter that begins with our Ash Wednesday services on March 5th. During the month of February and March, an envelope labeled "Easter Flowers" will be in your monthly stewardship envelopes. Please consider making a donation that will offset the cost of the lilies. When the Easter season is over, you are welcome to take the lilies home with you!
We look forward to one day having all the beautiful sacred art pieces in place in our church to enrich the masses and celebrations of sacraments. Please use our sacred art brochure 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.
For those interested, a list of memorial items for sponsorship is provided here (this document changes frequently, so please check back for the most current version). To make a donation, please call Josie at the church office (512-255-1389) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to be certain that the item you wish to sponsor is still available.
If you are new to the parish and have not yet registered or have questions, please stop by the welcome table the first weekend of each month. We would love to meet you and answer your questions! Or call either Eileen Vasquez at 733-2107 or the parish office at 255-1389.
SVdP has 8 assisted-listening devices available for use during mass. Anyone may check one out from a minister of hospitality upon arriving at mass and return it at the conclusion of that mass.
