January 2023 Note from Council President

Dear sisters and brothers of
St. Vincent’s parish community,

I feel it is not too late to say Happy New Year as long as we are still in the month of January, so from me personally and from all of the Parish Council members, many blessings, grace and happiness for the year ahead. Read rest of Geri Sicola’s message to the parish here.

In their memory

This beautiful votive candle-holder was made by young artisans at the South Baltimore Community Land Trust, which organization works for development without displacement. In our prayer alcove, the parish keeps this perpetual light beside the names of those who have been murdered in Baltimore City. St. Vincent’s, through the efforts of our Racial Equity Group, provides support for the SBCLT.

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.

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.

Source Documents compiled by St. Vincent’s CCR in 2018 and 2019 on the topics of Church reform and the abuse of children and vulnerable people within the Church.
