Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) Returns!

Greetings St. Vincent Parents & Village!

We are excited to announce that CLOW is back on Sundays! All the children in the parish are God's gift and blessings.

Here are some important details for this years' children ministry: With the help of our village which includes volunteers and parents, we are hoping to branch off the children into two age groups- (4-7) and (8-12).

This year CLOW will be led by Jeanna Murat. She is a member of the parish. Previously, she was the Director of Children's Ministry at FUMCOG (First United Methodist Church) and worked in the field of college access, advising low-income and 1st generation students with their college options. She also wears various hats as a member of our parish. This year, she will be working to include fellow parishioners and parents in ministering to our children during mass.

Every Sunday, we will need at least 2 volunteers to serve in CLOW. We encourage members of the church community to help with this ministry. The plan is to engage volunteers to split the ministry load (with guided curriculum) to allow participation in this important ministry for our children. Please consider blessing our children with your service by volunteering your time on Sunday during children's ministry. Signup at this link.

As in previous years, CLOW will be during the 9am and 10:30am mass. We will call upon the children to join us before the 1st reading. Children will join their parents at mass following the homily and before the eucharist. Most often the lessons will be based on the gospel or the 1st or 2nd readings. In addition, we hope to include prayers, sacraments and activities that are based on our Catholic faith.

St. V’s Young Adult Ministry

The St. Vincent's Young Adult Ministry (YAM) welcomes those between the ages of 18 and 45 especially, but we always love sharing with and learning from our youth and our elders! YAM's mission is to reach out across age, cultural, and gender identity divides, to create a safe space for all of God's precious children. We also seek to increase our sense of unity and to deepen our Catholic faith through prayer, reflections, and fellowship.

Like or follow us at St. Vincent's Catholic Church Young Adults Ministry right on Facebook! Be sure to tag YAM in your church related/sponsored events and tell friends and family to come and follow us! All are welcome!
