St. Vincent DePaul still needs our help
Needs for the St. Vincent de Paul Pantry this week are as follows:
pancake mix and syrup, cereal, vegetable soup, or canned meat other than tuna
All donations are truly appreciated.
StVdP wants to ask parishioners to PLEASE make it a habit to bring at least one food item each time they attend mass in hopes that more food can be donated. This would enable SVDP to deliver to families more often. Currently, our families only get help only once every 6 months.
The Gabriel Project celebrated the birth of one of our babies on February 4! She weighed 5 lbs. 8 oz. and is in need of Preemie or Newborn diapers or new/gently-used tiny clothing.
Donations may also be left in the SVDP Box in the Narthex.
We also have girl babies who are currently 4 months and 6 months old. Please join us in praying for these little girl babies and their mommies.
Your prayers and donations help them to have healthier and happier lives.

My Catholic Faith
The Book of Revelation - Monday Evenings, 7pm, Parish Hall, Lower Level
Next Class: Monday, Feb 27th
Will not meet Monday, March 6th due to BSU Spring Break
Our pastor, Fr. Brian Doerr, has long enjoyed studying the Book of Revelation. The book is the center of much discussion and even futuristic speculation. What is really happening in the Book of Revelation? What is the message St. John is attempting to communicate? Does the book impact the future of the world? Can any of this be ascertained or interpreted by modern Christians? The mark of the beast, the anti-Christ, the whore of Babylon, 666, God's wrath... and the victory of the Divine Lamb, it will all be discussed and revealed. YES! There are answers to these questions.
