                                                          2014 Annual Catholic Appeal: Build My Church



The theme for the 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal is – Build My Church. But it is not a physical space
we are seeking to build. It is a spiritual space, welcoming all to a life of holiness and offering a
pathway to heaven. Please prayerfully consider making a pledge to the 2014 Appeal. You may make a
pledge at our parish this weekend or the next 2 pledge weekends, or online at archstl.org/aca The
Annual Catholic Appeal – in the end – seeks only this, to help more people recognize and meet Jesus,
and experience the courage and joy of the first disciples. This is the Church we seek to build.


Thank you for your stewardship in the past, and for your pledge this year.  St. Vincent’s has always
had a consistent commitment to the ACA.  We were helped when we needed it through the ACA;
each year we have an opportunity to give back to those in need.  God bless!
On this Second Sunday of Easter – Divine Mercy Sunday – we
recall the great events of God’s everlasting mercy which we have
celebrated over the past two weeks, through Holy Week and this
past week’s accounting of the stories of the Resurrection.

We are reminded today that the effect of the Resurrection on the
first community
is seen in the love they have for one another and the freedom they
have to care for the least among them so generously. We can pray
for that grace for our time.

The Thomas story is powerful. Jesus invites Thomas, in the midst
of his doubts, to enter his wounds to know who he is, for Thomas
and for us. We are invited today to contemplate those wounds, to
enter them, to experience the power of God’s everlasting mercy for
us, in Jesus, and to be grateful. Believing is seeing – seeing that we
have nothing to fear when we recognize our Lord and our God.

Come to pray with Jesus and our new canonized Saints, Pope St.
John XXIII and Pope St. John Paul II at celebrations TODAY in
our deanery:

Assumption Church, New Haven, 2pm.  Divine Mercy Prayers,
Rosary, Reconciliation, and Benediction
Our Lady of Lourdes, Washington, 2pm.  Divine Mercy Prayers,
Rosary, and Benediction

There are also Chaplet of Divine Mercy pamphlets in the vestibule.
Welcome to our new Roman Catholics!














Clayton Benne, Madeline Neavill, and Dwayne De Clue were welcomed into the faith on Holy Saturday,
and received the Sacraments of Confirmation & Eucharist.  
May God bless your journey!  We’re glad to have you with us!
On May 8, the parish leadership of St. Vincent’s will meet at Immaculate Conception in Augusta with parishioners, Fr. Heim, Msgr. Hanneke,
and representatives from the Archdiocese.

I presume this is just a preliminary meeting.  
Please keep us in prayer for a fruitful meeting as we work to journey together into the future.
Beginning this Friday, and on Wednesdays and Fridays after
all-school Mass until May 21, our students will be praying the
Rosary.  
All are welcome!



Next Sunday, our 2nd graders will be making their First Holy
Communion at the 10am Mass.  We will have reserved pews for
the Communicants and their families.  
We celebrate as a parish this big step in their spiritual journey!





With the Palm Sunday and Easter bulletins having to go in weeks
before, this is the first opportunity to thank everyone for a
wonderful Palm Sunday Festival. So many people come together
to make it happen:  our Committee, who does all the pre-work
and is here ALL day and evening; our tent volunteers; our youth
clean up group; all workers and dessert makers.  
Thank you, thank you, thank you!  
Thanks be to God, too, for better weather than it could have
been. We have people coming from all over the Archdiocese, and
those who come, usually come back because of our great food
and hospitality.  Job well done!
