The Music Ministry of SVdP Church welcomes you to this evening of scripture and song celebrating the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The service is composed of nine “lessons” (readings) from sacred scripture, and “carols” (or choir anthems) based on the theme of each reading, telling the story of our salvation from the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden.
Led by our parish adult choir and youth choir, the program will be accompanied by piano, organ, flute, guitar, bass guitar, violin, trombone and percussion. The program also includes carol singing by all and is a wonderful event for the entire family!
Admission is free. A free-will donation will benefit the ministries of the parish. A holiday reception will follow the service!
You are invited to participate in this lovely SVdP Advent tradition, a program that is sponsored by the Hill Country Christmas Bureau. The Giving Tree holds tags with children’s toy wishes as well as tags for our elderly neighbors who are in need. Please choose a tag, purchase the gift and return it to the church un-wrapped by December 16th.
FAQ about the Giving Tree:
“May I bring a toy or gift NOT listed on a tag?”
“May I bring an item that is very gently used?”
Absolutely YES! All gifts are most welcome!

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 email@example.com to be certain that the item you wish to sponsor is still available.
Filled with photos and video from our December 29th dedication mass, the photo book/DVD sets are available for $20 (please bring cash or make checks out to "SVdP"). Available in the parish office (Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm). Of course, they make great gifts, too!
