Celebrate the Joy of the Easter Season
The Easter Season is 50 days — longer than Lent. This Easter Season, we invite you to be intentional about proclaiming and celebrating the Risen Christ throughout this joyous season.
St. Vincent's Staff invites you to follow in the footsteps of the Risen Christ and his friends from the Resurrection to Pentecost.
Beginning Friday, April 23rd, the Stations of the Light will be available to walk and pray through in the church courtyard on Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Please remember to social distance.
Our Annual Catholic Appeal
Goal this year is 129,665.
If each registered family gave $60 we would reach this goal!
All funds raised ABOVE the $129,665 goal will go towards replacing the soap and paper towel dispensers on campus to TOUCHFREE!

Please help us reach this goal!
If you have already made your gift to the Appeal, thank you! If not, please return your pledge envelope today or donate online, click the link below.

Thank you!
A message from your PAA

Well! Spring has sprung, and with it, so many changes! After waiting all these months to “get back to normal” we realize we are not going back to what was, but are moving ahead to what will be. It is said that humans do not like change. I don’t know if it’s that so much as humans desire stability. I like change, but I don’t like that period that follows change when it feels like the boat is being tossed about and could go over at any moment. Once the waters are calm and the ship is righted, a new direction is often exciting and exhilarating. In the next weeks we will say good-bye to our pastor who has provided us with a strong guiding hand and solid leadership for 13 years. In light of all the uncertainty of the last year and a half, it feels like a tipping point. Yet we know who is ultimately steering our ship, and just when it seems like He’s asleep in the bow, He is calming the sea and reminding us that He is in control and He works all things to our good.

May is here which means it is time for the Vincentians (our 55+) group to meet again. We will meet on May 11, at noon. Once again we will be on Zoom. The best part of these times is seeing each others faces and the fun games we play. If you would like to join us let Katie know and she can send you the zoom link. I can’t wait to see all of you.
Congratulations Class of 2021!

A Baccalaureate Mass will be celebrated in your honor on Wednesday, May 19th, 2021 at 7pm.

Real Womanhood
by Lisa Cotter

Would you like to bring the Blessed Sacrament to our sick and homebound parishioners. There is a great need for this ministry right now. If you would like to be a part of this beautiful ministry please contact Katie at

“Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament … There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien
Thank you Fr. Bill
It is hard to believe that after 13 years Fr. Bill has been transferred to St. John the Baptist in Covington. We are going to celebrate and thank him at both masses on June 13. More details will be coming, but I can say that there will be food trucks. We do need your help to makes this a success.
  1. We need one or two people to help us put together a memory book for him. If you would like to help with this please contact Katie at
  2. Start thinking about pictures and memories you might like to add to the memory book.
  3. Plan on coming to either mass to celebrate. 
Knights of Columbus - First Annual Virtual Auction
May 6, 2021 at 12:00pm Ending May 10, 2021 at 8:00pm
We are excited to announce our 1st Annual Knights of Columbus 7528 Virtual Auction to be held May 6 – May 10, 2021!  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have been unable to have any of our regular fundraising events (annual crab feed, Lenten fish fry, spaghetti dinners, etc.) and have chosen this online auction as a way to raise the much-needed funds to support our community this year.
To raise money for the community, we are asking for your support. Would you be willing to donate item(s) for our auction? Any item big or small will be greatly appreciated.
We also invite you to attend our virtual auction. You can preview the auction at the link below. You may register anytime prior to the auction start date. Please invite your family and friends to join us as well.
If you can donate any items, big or small, please email or call 253.973.2842, and we will arrange pick up of the item. We thank you for your support and generosity.
