Parish Picnic is Oct. 2


Striving to be a grateful parish following Christ by loving God, and loving our neighbors as ourselves through our words, deeds, and thoughts.

"True love is both loving and letting oneself be loved. It is harder to let ourselves be loved than it is to love."

Pope Francis

Youth Ministry  

Interested in helping out with our Youth Faith Formation, specifically to help teach Confirmation and or assist in our up and coming youth groups. Confirmation will be for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, as well as any high school age student who has yet to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our youth group will be split into two groups, the Alphas and the Omegas. The Alphas will be 7th-9th and the Omegas 10th-12th. Once we get our volunteers we will be able to get Confirmation up and running. If you are interested in volunteering please let me know by Friday, September 30th at 2:00 pm. You can reach me at my office number 442-6466 ext. 1103 or feel free to stop by during my office hours from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm at St. Bernard's rectory in the front. Please do not hesitate to come to me with questions, concerns, or that you wish to serve the youth of our parishes. I will also be available during the parish picnic this Sunday. Melanie Broswick and I will have a Children's and Youth Faith Formation table set up. Please come and say "hello."  Also, please keep our ministry in your prayers. And may God continue to bless all of you.

In Christ, Analisa Alegria Youth Minister 

Buckland Box Contributions

St. Vincent de Paul thanks you for your continued support of canned goods for those less fortunate in our community.  For the month of September, we are focusing on collecting boxes of cereal, either dry or the to-be-cooked variety.  This will help with our outreach to families getting children off to school and is something that kids can serve themselves.  Please remember that we take only NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS in the Buckland Box.  Please do NOT leave clothing or household items.  On your own, you may take them to the Rescue Mission Thrift Shop, Miranda’s Rescue Thrift Shop, the Tailwaggers’ Shop or the Cancer Society’s Discovery Shop.   We simply have no way to distribute these items and appreciate your help in this matter.

Are You Interested?

The parish is looking for more lectors to assist in proclaiming the Sacred Scriptures at Mass and Extra-Ordinary Ministers of the Eucharist to assist with Holy Communion.  For these roles one must be a practicing Catholic and if married, married in the church. Please let Fr. Tom know if you are interested.
