ST.

ST. VINCENT de PAUL REFLECTION:   In the Gospel today, Jesus asks, “What are you looking for?”  Often, we are looking for happiness in very selfish ways, but we find that when we look for ways to make others happy, it is then that we truly become happy.  As you donate to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, know that you are a sign of God’s love to those who are suffering and you give them reason to believe and to trust.

  ON-LINE GIVING OPTIONS DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC:   While the parish has received many generous donations throughout the past weeks during the shutdown, and we have applied with many other small businesses for the Payroll Protection Program, I did want to make you aware that the diocese has made available to all parishes an on-line giving option during these days of parish shutdowns, so people may continue to support the work of their parishes.  You can make a one-time online gift, or setup a recurring (weekly, monthly) gift that will be made and then forwarded on to the parish of your choosing.  To access the online giving page through the Diocesan Catholic Foundation, simply visit https://www.givecentral.org/appeals-form-registration/acp5e7d16110ebfd/user/guest.  

   Thank you for your consideration of our parish needs during this difficult time for us all!  Gifts may also be dropped off at the church using your envelopes at St Mary’s any weekday morning, or left in the mailbox outside the main entrance.  

God bless!  Fr. Timothy
