ST. V’s Annual Pool Party is July 26, noon to 8 PM, at Cathy Bunting’s pool. If you are new at St. V’s, go to 7:15 or 11:45 Mass or have never attended, we extend a special welcome for you to join us and get to know your fellow parishioners. It’s a fun day.
Teachers, we are in summer session now, which means teaching resources are more limited and not grade specific. Please consider bringing your own age-appropriate material based on the readings.
The Easter/Pentecost issue of Together Sharing Christ is now available.
We continue to reflect on the “now what?” of our faith life in this Easter Season as we are commissioned and sent with the Spirit at Pentecost. We review where we have been as a people of faith with Vigil reflections and where we are going.
While each Sunday we hear the Word read from St. Vincent’s Altar Bible, rarely do we see its illuminated pages, modeled after the illuminated manuscripts from Medieval times. Each of the four Gospels and the five books of the Torah have an illumination bound into them.
The opening words of the Gospel in Greek anchor each illumination, and scenes from each Gospel surround the large initial letter of the text. Above, the Nativity and the Prodigal Son are among the pictorial stories in the Gospel of Luke’s illumination.
A limited number of sets are available for purchase. Purchase all nine illuminations for $150.00 or just the Old Testament for $100.00 and the New Testament for $100.00. Contact the parish office at 410-962-5078 or email@example.com for more information.
