World Mission Sunday
We are called to this Eucharistic celebration – along with Catholics in every parish, chapel and church throughout the world – to fulfill the call we first heard at Baptism, the call to be missionaries, to share our faith. On World Mission Sunday, we are invited to “celebrate the hope that saves” through prayer and participation in the Eucharist, and by giving generously to the second collection this weekend for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.
VianneyFest is Sunday!!!!
Please remember to drop off those last minute donations - baked goods for the cake wheel, wine for the wine wheel, 2-liter sodas for the ring toss booth, and bottled water and canned sodas – in the pavilion before the 11am Mass on Sunday. Fr. Michael thanks those who have already donated and asks those who haven’t to donate a bottle of wine and/or a 2-liter bottle of soda. Thanks for all your support and we’ll see you at the festival!! Raffle tickets and t-shirts are still available. Volunteer opportunities abound! Go to
and find out how you can volunteer to help with VianneyFest. Live auction items include a gourmet dinner for 10 cooked by the Knights and hosted by Fr. Michael, a roasted pig dinner, a Big Event t-shirt quilt, UT and A&M quilts, and much more.
Part 2 of a workshop for care givers,
facilitated by Charmiel Teresi, is Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 pm in the church parlor. Check the bulletin for more information.

Have you ever wished
to meet the Blessed Mother or St. Juan Diego in person? What about Mother Cabrini or Mother Seton? St. Ignatius Loyola or St. Thomas More? Would you like the opportunity? On All Saints Day (Tuesday, November 1), the Wednesday 5th grade Faith Formation class is sponsoring their fall service project. The class would like to invite all parishioners and friends to their Living Museum of Saints in the narthex before Mass on All Saints Day. The children have been studying Saints of our faith this semester and are excited to share with their SJV family what they have learned. The Living Museum will be open from 6:00 – 6:45pm. Mass begins at 7pm. All are welcome!
