25th Sunday in Ordinary Time | September 18, 2022

If you are a lector, please stay after Mass for a few minutes for a brief Lector training.

Reminder, we have Confirmation Session at Sacred Heart Chapel at 2pm today for everyone who will be confirmed who is in 7th through 12th grade. From 3-5pm in the School Commons we have a youth Group gathering for 6-12 grade from St Vincent de Paul Parish including everyone enrolled at Sacred Heart School in 6-12 grade.

We are having an inquiry session about healing from separation and/or divorce. Divorce is too common in our society and the Church hasn't placed a high priority in the past to help our parishioners heal and to understand the Church is not discriminating against them. Misinformation and suffering are much too common. Deacon Martin invites anyone who would like to find out more information about the Catholic program Divorced Now What? this Thursday evening in the Sacred Parish Center West from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Persons who have been through the program will be present.

This Thursday at 6:30pm will also be our first RCIA session. Please invite those you know who might want to become Catholic or know more about the Catholic Faith, and then attend with them to our first RCIA session this Thursday 6:30pm at Parish Center.

We need you to get your Bazaar tickets purchased if you have not done so. It’s going to be a great night. The food is always amazing.  We need to get numbers to the caterer next week so please help us give the caterer a really big accurate number.  Thank you so much!

If you need and have not received the readings for next weekend, the Feast of St Vincent de Paul, call the parish office so we can get them to you.

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time | August 21, 2022

Raise Rite/ SCRIP will be sold after each Mass.  (NOT 4pm)

Please continue to pray for everyone who is returning to school especially this week.  There is a back to school prayer found on the front cover of the bulletin.  Thank you for all your prayerful support you give to our school.

Please note inside the bulletin we will continue to run parts of a publication about the state of the schools in the Diocese of Jefferson City.  It is full of good information.

Also, note the information about the incident that occurred over the weekend of August 5-6 at Sacred Heart.  We are working diligently to increase our security. When these pieces are more in place we will resume Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Also, notice the information about the 3 goals of the pastoral plan and some of the ways we have been working on these three goals.

August 27 is the Feast of St. Monica.  Please pray for our parishioners who are not with us at Mass on a regular basis and for those who do not feel at home in our church that they may be here, welcomed and feel at home here.  Then ask the Lord who you are to invite back to Mass.  Ask for the courage and wisdom to invite.  Then, invite.

Thank you for working the concessions at the state fair, for getting our properties and buildings looking better over the summer and for all the time and talent you are putting into the ministries of St Vincent de Paul.  You are needed. You are appreciated.  Let’s continue to work together to make this parish all God wants it to be.

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time | August 14, 2022

Tomorrow/Monday is not a holy day of obligation, but is still a holy day, so in honor of the feast of the Assumption, we will have 8am Mass at Sacred Heart.  All are invited.

This is the time of year when we talk about returning: the bulletin is full of programs we start up again soon:

Registration for PSR, Confirmation, and RCIA information is in the bulletin.  If you know someone who may be interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith or becoming Catholic, invite them to be part of RCIA this year.  We will have Sponsor training for anyone who has sponsored someone in the past or would like to sponsor someone now or in the future. It’s always good to know what the Church expects a sponsor to do so we are more comfortable doing it.  Please check out the bulletin for good information on RCIA and on sponsor training. Sponsor training workshop will be this Wednesday at 6:30pm in parish center.

 

School Open House is Tuesday August 23 6pm-7:30pm.  We look forward to seeing our school families and pray for a great year for everyone.

It’s also time to get the refresher meeting for ministers at Mass. We start with Communion Ministers after all Masses on the weekend of August 27 and 28.  It won’t take long, but is important to hear what is said.  If you know you cannot make it, please contact the parish office.
