Friday is the Annunciation of our Lord

The Annunciation (from Latin annuntiatio), also referred to as the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Annunciation of Our Lady, or the Annunciation of the Lord, is the Christian celebration of the announcement by the to Mary that she would conceive and bear a son through a virgin birth and become the mother of Jesus Christ, the Christian Messiah and Son of God, marking the Incarnation.
Stations of the Cross are every Friday through Lent in the church at 7pm.

We will also have Stations of the Cross outside for those wanting to social distance and is available from 8:30am-3:30pm, on Fridays in the courtyard.
Dear Parishioners of St. Vincent de Paul,

God is good!

In business there are three ways to account for inventory, FIFO (First In, First out), LIFO (Last in, First out) and JIT (Just in Time). God seems to use the JIT method. Have you ever received a small windfall just as you needed it? I see that happen in my personal life all the time and I see it here too. The JIT inventory method is about bringing in inventory just as you are about to need, instead of storing product. God does that too! While we all wish that God might send us a big nest egg windfall so it’s there for times that we need it, God wants us to trust in him to provide JUST IN TIME.

In both my bookkeeping, and now my Pastoral Administrator Assistant, P.A.A., position, I have been responsible for budgeting and creating Financial Statements. As an accountant I have experience at looking at numbers and finding trends, both good and bad. I see a trend here at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, that trend is our needs are met, Just In Time. A few years ago, before COVID, we were beginning to see a decline in our Sunday Giving and we were worried about making our budget, then all of a sudden, we received a very generous bequest from a former parishioner, Praise God! Not only did we receive a financial lift but also a spiritual one, gifts like these bring us such joy in the office, not because of the dollar amount but because we see people being generous and living out the will of Jesus to give back. 
When we were collecting for the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal, we said that all dollars above our goal amount would go towards installing touch less dispensers. Today, 10 months later, our parish is back to filled pews, almost, programs and dare I say events with food! Well guess what my brothers and sisters in Christ, we have started putting in touch less paper towel and soap dispensers throughout the facilities and it’s happening now – Just In Time.

Middle School Retreat

The middle school retreat is going to be March 29 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The best part of a retreat whether it be a week or a few hours is that it brings our faith alive in a new way. If you have any questions please let Katie know.  

Questions, please contact Katie at

Our 55+ group the Vincentians, will be meeting on April 5th. This is a special event because our very own Deacon Jerry Graddon is going to be speaking about Holy Week and Easter.

This weekend we are taking up the Catholic Relief Services Collection (CRSC) to help Jesus in disguise. Through this collection, six Catholic agencies are able to provide services for immigrants, humanitarian aid in the wake of natural disasters, refuge for the displaced, and advocacy for peace and justice around the world. Your contributions make a difference, so please be generous.

Thank you to everyone who has been so generous to our diaper drive. The goal is to fill that diaper corral every week. Our community is so very blessed by the people of our parish. 
Volunteers needed! We are converting the Life House back into a Rectory. The rectory will house both Bishop Schuster and our new Parochial Vicar, who will hopefully starting in July. I am looking for a group of volunteers to help clean out the house to get it ready for constructions. Please contact Diana Carasa at or 253-839-2320 x206 if you would like to help. Together we can make this Rectory into a home!
