Finding God Abiding

Thank you to everyone who celebrated the launch of Finding God Abiding with me during the weekend of June 11-12. I’m grateful to our St. Vincent’s community for the ongoing faith formation that enabled me to write this book. Click the link to watch a 24-minute video of my remarks, reading, and Q&A in church on Saturday evening. Copies of the book are still available for $20 (with several gift copies available courtesy of a benefactor); email christine@christine-marie-eberle.com or just connect with me after Mass.
Blessings! - Christine

Call for Reflection

St Vincent’s has a reputation for being a parish that prioritizes social justice and combating racism, but this reputation can cause us to feel that others should be doing the work of learning and improving—not us. In fact, being good at anything requires lifelong learning, humility, and the willingness to critically evaluate ourselves and find out how we can do better.

All of this starts with listening to each other across our St Vincent’s family. We will look at many other ways to guide our parish toward racial justice, with the help of the Holy Spirit. If you would like to share your experience at a future Mass, please contact the reflection coordinator, Dorina Opferman, at dpsinger16@aol.com.

Weekly Bible Study

Fr. Joseph leads a Bible study via Zoom (Meeting ID: 84051439068) every Wednesday evening starting at 7pm (NOTE CHANGE IN TIME).

Our distribution schedule is Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon (12pm) to 2pm. Individuals can line up (properly spaced out) in front of our building on the sidewalk and we we have just one group of people come into the lot to collect items at a time to help keep everyone safe. Mondays we hand out non-perishable bags as well as a hot meal and on Fridays we also distribute toiletry kits with soap and other items.

We are asking that folks who come to collect food share their name, household size, and a phone number where we can reach them so that our staff can call and check in on them and see if there is anything else we can do to help.

We are also still offering our Legal and Social Services over the phone.
