Blood supplies are always low after the holidays. Please consider donating to helping re-stock supplies for those facing medical emergencies. You will be someone’s hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation. Thank you!
Did you take an ornament from the St. Vincent de Paul Giving Tree during Advent? You may have noticed that some of the ornaments were for children in Los Toros. The ornaments for children in Los Toros suggested a monetary donation since it is not possible to transport actual gifts there in time for Christmas. The gift money was wired down to the Los Toros SVDP and used there to purchase the gifts. This photo, taken in their church, shows some of the parents, grandparents, and children with some of the members of the Los Toros SVDP at the distribution of the gifts.
The people of our sister parish in Los Toros send you their gratitude for your generosity in sharing the joy of Christmas with the needy families in their village.
For more information about the Los Toros Mission, or to volunteer to serve on one of the Los Toros Mission committees, please contact Joe Schaub at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with any of the Los Toros committee members.

You Never Know… when you will need to help save a life. As an update for some, and news for others, the parish has 2 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). They are used to evaluate heart rhythms and deliver a potentially lifesaving shock if necessary. Anyone can use them!
1. Located at the top of the stairs leading to the lower church hall. You’ll see a 3 dimensional sign facing the worship space. Look for it today, so you’ll know where it is during an emergency.
2. Located on the lower level across from the gym doors. During an emergency, if someone says, “get the AED,” please do not hesitate. Take it out of the cabinet on the wall and bring to the site, and call 911.
The parish also stocks 3 first aid kits:
1. Usher’s Room
2. Kitchenette off Gathering Hall
3. Parish Office Workroom
– even if you just need a Band-Aid
The Prayer Shawl Ministry invites you to help yourself to a prayer shawl for:
