+ Watch Sunday Mass, said for Nancy Borneman, Magdaleno Camacho, Thomas Dewey Camacho, Richard Thamasett, and the People of STVBS, LIVE at 10 a.m. here.
+ Today on the Feast of St. Francis, Pope Francis released an encyclical letter called Fratelli Tutti. The name comes from the way St. Francis addressed his brothers and sisters. It is meant to be a response by the world after the pandemic. Pope Francis writes, “In his simple and direct way, Saint Francis expressed the essence of a fraternal openness that allows us to acknowledge, appreciate and love each person, regardless of physical proximity, regardless of where he or she was born or lives.” You can read his encyclical here.
+ Parish Project: The parish is once again collecting greeting cards including All Occasion and Christmas. We will also accept pens, pads and calendars. These items will be packaged and distributed to our local food pantries Loaves & Fishes and Catholic Charities. Reminder: We cannot accept cards that request a monetary donation, religious items or prayer cards. The clients that frequent these pantries have appreciated receiving these gift packages. Thank you for making this project so successful in the past. A collection basket is available in the vestibule. For sanitation purposes, please place all items in a zip lock or other plastic storage bag before leaving in the basket.
