St. Vincent’s Strategic Plan

This month Parish Council has approved St. Vincent’s Five-Year Strategic Plan. Thanks to all who had a hand in this by contributing their time and ideas. The plan will guide our efforts as we seek to grow the parish, better engage parishioners and newcomers and make our finances more understandable.

The Way of the Cross

staationJourney with our savior on The Way to fulfilling his fidelity to his Father.

St. Vincent hosted a Stations of the Cross service earlier in Lent. If you were not able to make it, you can prayerfully reflect at home! The Liturgy Committee has written a new prayer resource for this Lent. It can be accessed here.

Together Sharing Christ Now Available

The Lenten issue of Together Sharing Christ is now available.

The main avenue for distribution of this publication is on the website, though this link. However, TSC is mailed to all who cannot access it online or pick up copy in the back of church. The advantage of the online PDF version is you get the full benefit of seeing the artwork in color (and, of course, it saves paper). If you would like to change how you receive it, please send a note to Chris McCullough at chrism@stvchurch.org.

JVC Volunteer Coming to St. Vincent!

logo2St. V’s application for a Jesuit Volunteer Corps member was approved! We will begin the matching process in the spring, and the volunteer, who will work with us full time for a year, will start in August. In our application, we proposed that the volunteer would both work with our youth and in our many social programs, such as the Friday dinner, The Resource Exchange, our food pantry, men’s clothing ministry and our park.

The Jesuit Volunteer Corps offers women and men an opportunity to work full-time for justice and peace. Learn more about this organization at the JVC website.
