Contribution statements for 2022 were recently placed in the mail. A heartwarming thank you goes out to all of St. Vincent de Paul’s parishioners and donors. The support and generosity shown by you in 2022 was overwhelming as it was a challenging year for all.
We will be hosting a Mardi Gras dinner on Fat Tuesday, February 21st, at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $25 per person following Holy Mass today.

Several of St. Vincent de Paul’s chefs will be putting on their aprons once again to provide us with New Orleans style cuisine. Please contact Jeanie Blowers, Theresa Dodd or Hilda Fuentes for additional information.
There will be a Confirmation Retreat for all Confirmation students on Saturday, February 4th. We will gather at 2:15 p.m. in the Religious Education building. The retreat will include attendance at the 4:00 p.m. Holy Mass. Confirmation students will not be required to attend religious education class the following day.
A new lector training will take place on February 4th at 12 noon. If you would like to volunteer to serve as a lector, please contact Al Stumm or Debbie Chisholm.
The Blessing of Candles traditionally takes place on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord which is a Thursday this year. Since Holy Mass is not celebrated that day, you are invited to bring any candles that you would like blessed to Holy Mass one day this week or next Sunday. Fr. Adrian will be happy to bless the candles before or after Holy Mass.
The second collection is for our Future Building, including a rectory, and Emergency Needs fund.
