Stations of the Cross - A Beautiful Tradition
The Stations of the Cross are images of stories about the passion and death of Jesus Christ. Most of the stories which make up the Stations were drawn from Scripture, and others, such as Saint Veronica wiping the face of Jesus, were taken from tradition. The route traditionally held to have been taken by Jesus to his death at Calvary (Golgotha) in Jerusalem is called the Via Dolorosa or the Sorrowful Way. The Stations were erected in local churches as a way of bringing this prayerful experience to those who could not travel to Jerusalem. THERE WILL BE NO PUBLIC STATIONS OF THE CROSS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Beatitude Boxes & Bags

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
MATTHEW 5:6


During the season of Lent, the Serving Core Value Committee invites the parishioners of St. Vincent to collect food and paper items for distribution to the needy. Beatitude Boxes will be filled with specific food items and Beatitude Bags will be filled with specific paper products.


Tags are posted on the bulletin board in the gathering area. Some tags will list all items in the box (approximate cost $30-$35) and all items in the bag (approximate cost $12-$15). Other tags list some of the items in the box or bag. You are invited to take one or more tags and purchase the requested items.


Return the items to the Gathering Area. Please enter the Church door nearest the Bell Tower to enter the Church. It will be open each day from 8:00am to Noon. These items are needed now until April 5th. Boxes and bags will then be filled and given to the needy in the local community. Thank you for your generosity!

Confessions During Lent

“Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel!” These are the words you hear on Ash Wednesday when the holy ashes are marked on your forehead. This ancient practice of acknowledging sin is also a great opportunity … God’s unconditional forgiveness! During these days leading up to Easter, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered at various times. Take advantage of these blessed encounters with the forgiving Father!

 

Confessions
Saturday 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
or by appointment - Call Parish Office at 573-335-7667.
