SEPT. 27 is The Feast of St. Vincent dePaul

The Church celebrates the feast of St. Vincent dePaul, who knew that “God had sent him to bring good news to the poor.”  Together with your gifts, the members of your St. Vincent dePaul Conference continue his work and mission in our parish.  (Bulletin Announcements) Thank you!

St. Vincent dePaul was a French priest and the “apostle of charity” who lived from 1581 to 1660.  St. Vincent was outstanding not only for his own charity and kindness, but also because he organized others (religious and lay persons) to minister to those in need.  His works have thus lived on long after his own passage to eternity.

Please continue to donate.

The local need is greater than ever.

“Dear Jesus:  Please forgive me for so often failing to love my neighbor. May my life speak to others of Your love and compassion.”(Joan Winmill Brown)

A prayer: Lord, walk with us. Teach us to do what is right, to serve the poor, and to always recognize the face of Christ in those we help.

May God give us the grace to be grateful for everything He has given us, and to show that gratitude in our generosity to others.
