Thank you to all who already completed census forms at St. Vincent
these past two weekends. It was a very painless and quick process,
made even easier by the refrehments and camaraderie of fellow
parishioners. A special thanks to Rick Mueller, Fred Roesner and Fr.
Gene for their donations of home-made sausage and wine. Some of
you were asking where to send your photos for the census, since the
email address did not appear in Fr. Gene’s letter. Please send a
photo of your family to email@example.com.
If you have not yet completed your census forms, you can do this on
the weekend of Aug. 29/30 after the 4:30 Saturday and 7:30 Sunday
Masses at Immaculate Conception. This is for BOTH Immaculate
Conception and St. Vincent parish.
Thanks so much to members of the Stewardship Committees from
both parishes for your work with the census!
Thanks so much to all who shared their time in helping stuff for mailings this past Thursday in
preparation for both parish festivals! And thanks to all who are planning and helping to get ready
for both events. We couldn’t do it without you!

Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Grace
Grace is a supernatural gift of God to men and angels for our
eternal salvation. The Church makes a distinction between
sanctifying grace and actual grace. Sanctifying grace is “the
gratuitous gift that God gives us to make us participants in
his Trinitarian life” (Compendium, 423). It is the permanent
disposition (quality, or condition) to live and act in keeping
with God’s call. Actual grace refers to God’s interventions at
the beginning of our conversion or along our path to holiness.
St. Vincent & Immaculate Conception have chosen the next book for our
book club! Next week there will be more information about new and
returning members to the groups, as well as signups for placing your order
for the book, which will cost $3. Here is info about the book:
These are difficult times for the Catholic Church and the United States of
America. There is only one solution to the problems we face… saints!
Becoming a saint is a choice, and we must begin choosing the saint within
each of us. The biggest crisis of our time is not economic, health care, or
vocations, but is an identity crisis. We have forgotten our mission to
become saints and forgotten our story as Catholics. We must rediscover
that mission and hold each other accountable to accepting responsibility
for that mission. Business as usual is not going to cut it. We need heroic
Catholicism. We must stop talking, and start walking… stop crying, and
start sweating… stop defining ourselves by our sins, and start realizing we
are saints in the making! Everything we need to accomplish our mission is
in the Church… but the Catholic Church is a sleeping giant. It is time we
wake the sleeping giant! This book is a five step guide to choosing the
saint within you. The world doesn’t need another John Paul II or Mother
Teresa. The world needs you. Your ordinary life has an extraordinary
Book club groups will begin to meet in October and ending before the
Season of Advent. Think and pray about joining us!
