Reflections on the Sunday Scriptures

First Sunday of Lent: February 21, 2021

by Peggy Shouse

There are some unusual things about rainbows. You don’t see them often, so they become more special when they do appear. The conditions have to be just right to form a rainbow — the sun lower than 42 degrees in the sky, etc.  But in order to see a rainbow, you also have to take certain actions: you have to stand with your back to the sun and look into the storm and the dark . . .

A Season of Catholic Social Teaching

This Liturgical year, St. Vincent’s parish is studying on on the principles of CST, including Solidarity, The Call to Family,Community and Participation, the Dignity of Work & the Rights of Workers, and the Option for the Poor and Vulnerable. 


        About Rights and Responsibilities, parishioner Pat Ball writes: While we have individual rights, we are social beings and belong to many groups starting with our nuclear families. Our belief in a Triune God gives us the example of how our lives are lived in relationship. Because of that, we need to abide by rules that are meant to protect the rights of all in the community. Read the rest of Pat’s introduction to the CST principle of Rights and Responsibilities as taught by the Church by clicking here.

St. Vincent’s Response to the Need for Church Reform

The parishioners of St. Vincent’s share a deep concern over the crises of abuse and lack of accountability in the Church, and the culture that contributed to this terrible situation. Committed to healing, justice, and peace, we call for, and work towards, the ecclesial and social change we so greatly need. Read information and updates on the work of the parish and  St. Vincent’s Committee on Church Reform. Vision Statement for the Committee on Church Reform We, the People of God, are birthing a more transparent and collaborative Church. Mission Statement of the Committee on Church Reform We show up to initiate and grow transformative, reciprocal, and engaged relationships among laity, religious, and clergy.   We hope to create and sustain meaningful change in the power dynamics and the structure of the Church.   We will work toward the restoration and healing necessary due to the sexual abuse of children by priests and its cover-up.
