We invite all parishioners to join the St. Vincent de Paul Adult Choir on a special pilgrimage tour of Slovenia and Italy in April 2024. The choir will sing at mass in Italy’s most sacred churches, basilicas, and abbeys, including St. Mark in Venice and the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. We will have the incredible opportunity to attend the Holy Father’s Papal Audience, as well as sing during the Sunday Solemn Mass at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter’s Basilica.
Our trip includes Lake Bled in Slovenia, Tuscan wine and cheese tasting in San Gimignano’s San Donato farm, Accademia dell’Arte in Florence to view Michelangelo’s David among other pieces of art, Naples, the well-preserved remains of Pompeii, and more are part of this phenomenal itinerary.
Besides offering us unique liturgical and musical opportunities, this journey will take us to the sacred sites of our Christian faith and Italy’s greatest cultural centers. We will celebrate our faith, form deeper bonds of friendship, and enjoy the food and customs of Slovenia and Italy! There is nothing like sharing such experiences with our friends and family in faith.

Choir Trip Information Brochure
“I AM” — the revelation of God’s name to Moses. A name covered in mystery, yet within it, an unfathomable declaration: Existence is here. Without origin and without end, an ever-present God speaking with a friend — a nearness that would culminate in God becoming man. Christ, the light and life of the human race, walked among us — a demonstration of His desire to become one with us. Now, Eternity bound to humanity, Existence bound to bread, Jesus waits upon the altar, echoing: “I AM HERE.”
This coming October 20-21, in response to the call for a National Eucharistic Revival, our Diocese will set out to host our own Eucharistic Congress at Christ Cathedral. This free 2-day event will invite people from all walks of life to gather in anticipation of the nearness of God. Through powerful speakers, transformative prayer, and Sacramental celebrations, we will experience the life that flows from His existence, meeting Him in the reality of His Presence.
With tracks in English, Spanish and Vietnamese, a track for young adults, and even for young children – there is something for everyone to encounter the presence of God. Learn more about why your should attend the Eucharistic Congress here:
Registration is free, and you can register now or get more information at rcbo.org/congress. We will see you there!
Be sure to save the date and sign up on our interest form to stay connected on all things Eucharistic Congress.

Recently a parishioner received an email that appeared to be from Fr. Kevin. The email requested urgent help was needed in the form of gift cards and cash. The parishioner wisely reached out to the office to confirm the authenticity of the request, to which we responded that it was a scam. Our priests will never ask you for urgent help through an email or text message. If you have any doubts about electronic communications from Fr. Kevin, Fr. David or any staff member please contact the parish office to verify. Thank you for your support and prayers.
