Giving Tuesday

As you may know, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is a day set aside to celebrate Giving Tuesday. This global day of giving is a movement with a focus on holiday and end-of-year giving. Please consider making a donation to Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School as we enter the holiday season and end-of-the-year.

Thank you for your consideration!

Move Back the Church — Volunteers Needed

We need your help to move back in to the Church. A work day has been set aside for Friday, November 30, 2018, beginning at 12:30PM and will continue until the work is complete. Donate some time if you are able. There will be both heavy and light work. Come for just an hour, bring some cooled bottled water for the workers, stay longer if possible, or just come by and see if you are needed.
