Help create our parish cookbook

cookbook logo


The STVBS Women’s Club Ministry is on a mission.....and that is to collect and compile our parishioners’ very best recipes into our own parish cookbook. We have been so impressed over the past few years with the wonderful dishes that parishioners have all contributed to various events and now it’s time to share all those “recipe secrets” with your parish family.

If you'd like to help out, all the details plus a recipe template to submit can be found on the website's new cookbook page HERE.

Please complete and submit forms as soon as possible but no later than August 15, 2020.
