Parish. Mass will begin at 2 p.m. with dinner following at 4 p.m. in the parish hall.
Couples celebrating their 25th or 50th wedding anniversary this year and any couple married over 50
years are invited to take part in this celebration.
Please contact the Parish Office at St. Vincent (636-433-2678) if you plan to attend. We need to send

anniversary date, and the name of the church they were married. Please also let the secretary know
which parish you are from (IC or SV) as parishes pay for the dinner.

parish council member, please schedule your parent-teacher meeting before this
|Concerning All Souls Day:
There is an envelope for regular Sunday stewardship on November 2 in your parish
packet. There will also be one marked ALL SOULS. This envelope is for a Mass
prayed each week for those you wish to remember. Please write the names of those
to be remembered and your donation in the envelope. The donations are treated as a
request for Masses and placed in the stipend account. All names will be placed in a
Book of the Dead which will be placed in the sanctuary. As we are critically low on
Mass stipends for Immaculate Conception, please consider using this envelope, so
we have Mass intentions for the year. Thank you!
Masses and times will remain as they are.
The requests to keep 2 and 2 was 2:1 in favor. As far as switching, there were
enough IC who wanted to keep the 4:30 and enough SV who wanted to keep 6:
30 to leave things as they are for the time being.
Thanks to all for giving me input. I’ve learned it’s impossible to please
everyone, as well as ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. There may come a time when
this needs to be re-addressed, but not right now. Let’s pray for no snow or ice
on weekends this winter! (smile)
Collection for Retirement Fund for Religious Next Weekend
(This envelope should be in your stewardship packets)
In the United States today, numerous Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests past
age 70 benefit from the Retirement Fund for Religious collection. Donations to this special
collection provide funding for support that helps religious communities care for senior members
and plan for long-term retirement needs.
On the weekend of November 2, all parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Louis will take up the
annual collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious, an opportunity for you to acknowledge
the thousands of senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests for their faithful
Whether or not we realize it, we are all beneficiaries of the tremendous contributions these
women and men have made to the Church in the United States. Through hard work, prayer, and
sacrifice, they built Catholic schools and hospitals, initiated programs to promote social justice,
and ministered to the neediest among us. As I reflect on the dedication of elderly religious, I
remain grateful for the ways they have shaped my own faith and for the tremendous service they
have offered our archdiocese.
Today, many religious communities struggle to care for their elderly members. Increasing
health-care costs and decreased income make it difficult to provide necessary medical care, costly
medications and basic services. Aging convents and other facilities pose additional challenges in
terms of safety and handicap accessibility.
You are asked to support numerous important causes in need of financial support. In
thanksgiving for all that senior religious have done, please join me in supporting the Retirement
Fund for Religious and in praying for God’s continued blessing on our nation’s elderly sisters,
brothers, and religious order priests.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis
Sponsored by the Office of Vocations, Come & See Weekends are an effective way of introducing high
school students to life at the Seminary. Based on the scripture passage, John 1:38 – 39, The Call of
the First Disciples, the weekend assists young men in discerning a call to the priesthood.
The weekend consists of prayer, daily Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Reconciliation,
spiritual conferences, presentations on student life in the college program, recreation and tours of the
It is a hope that the weekend would provide the impetus for young men to decide to join the Seminary.
Regardless if a young man joins or not, the weekend is successful if students are enlightened about
Seminary discernment and formation. It is a great opportunity to meet with collegian seminarians and
debunk many of the myths and false notions concerning priesthood and seminary life. Expressing
desire for more information, visiting students speak positively of their stay.
The family members of visiting students are able to join them and the Seminarians for Sunday Mass
followed by brunch. The families are given a tour of the Seminary and parents have time to ask
questions and address concern during an informational meeting with the Vocation Director.
The weekends are offered both Fall and Spring semesters:
November 21-23, 2014
March 27-29, 2015
Registration forms are available online at
This is a free event.
