For Both Parishes:
Mass intentions are coming in, which is great, and there are some intentions wanting to be
moved from SV to IC, which is fine, but….everybody wants the same dates and the same
mass times!  Some helpful things in requesting Masses:
-Please list more than one possible date if you want specific dates.
-Masses are set on a first-come basis.
-Masses without a specific date are most helpful because they can be used at weekday
Masses also.
-Please allow time for the Mass to be scheduled.  Masses are listed in each bulletin
including the next weekend.  We can’t get a Mass request in on Tuesday and have it for
the weekend; it’s already been scheduled the week before.
-Each pastor is required by canon law to celebrate a Mass for the people of the parishes.  
If 3 of the 4 Masses are scheduled for a specific intention, the 4th HAS to be for the
required intention.  I can’t change that.

Thanks for your requests for Masses.  Keep them coming!

Just a reminder:  
Next Saturday, August 2, there will be one Saturday Mass at 4pm at St. Vincent’s.  
I hope to see many of you at the Dinner Auction!
Latin American Apostolate
July 27, 2014

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In his Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis wrote: “The Church
which ‘goes forth’ is a community of missionary disciples who take the first step, who are
involved and supportive, who bear fruit and rejoice. An evangelizing community knows that
the Lord has taken the initiative...and therefore we can move forward, boldly take the
initiative, go out to others, seek those who have fallen away, stand at the crossroads, and
welcome the outcast.” (#24)

Since 1956, the Archdiocese of St. Louis has been going forth by sending priests to serve as
missionaries in Bolivia. During my pastoral visits to Bolivia in 2012 and 2013, I have been
greatly impressed by the joy of our missionaries and their great work in proclaiming the

Three of our missionaries serve primarily in Maria Reina Parish in La Paz. In addition to
preaching the Gospel and celebrating the sacraments in the main church and in various
chapels, they also help train the laity to serve as catechists, lay leaders, and missionary
disciples, as well as train seminarians in La Paz for the priesthood. Maria Reina also has a
health clinic that serves 5,000 who need medical/dental care and access to medicines and
food. There is also a lunch program to serve children who otherwise would suffer
malnourishment. In addition to their work in La Paz, our missionaries also travel 45 miles
outside La Paz to the parish called St. James (Santiago). Parishioners are Aymara—one of
the indigenous peoples of Bolivia—with their own language and culture. There are 30 villages
in the parish, each with its own chapel. There is no resident priest due to the severe shortage
of native priests.

Since his retirement last year, Bishop Emeritus Morgan Casey continues to serve 6 months
of the year in the Vicariate of the Pando where there are 250,000 people. Just a few months
ago, this area suffered from terrible flooding that displaced over 3,500 families and severely
damaged the only retreat center of the Vicariate.

All of this missionary work is possible through generous support of the faithful of our
Archdiocese in the annual collection for the Latin America Apostolate. This year the
collection is on August 3, 2014. Please be generous so that our St. Louis priest missionaries
in Bolivia can continue to proclaim The Joy of the Gospel.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis
