Mass Collection

Our 3rd grade class do a Mass collection on Friday, January 25th for Catholic Community Services of Utah. Mr. Dennis Kelsch, our custodian, was director of CCS for several years and will go to each of the classes to speak about how CCS helps people in need.

Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School Open House

Our Open House will be Sunday January 27th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please encourage neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family members to come to see why Saint Vincent School is so GREAT!

The number one reason why new families come to our school is word of mouth from parents like you! At Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School we have a parent referral program for grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. This program rewards those who assist in bringing new students to our school. Qualifying referrals are rewarded with a $500 credit off next year’s tuition.

The newly renovated and expanded Nano Nagle Children’s Center (Infant through 3 year olds) and the renovated church will also be open for tours during this time.

Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week will be January 27 through February 2, 2018.
