Please consider donating an item for the auction that will take place during the

items following a theme. For example – “Night on the Town” might be a basket with a gift certificate to a local motel, movie tickets, and a gift certificate to
a restaurant; “Pamper You” might be a basket with nail polish, gift card for
massage and/or manicure and pedicure. Donated items can be taken to the
church office or you can contact Doretta Gerber. All proceeds will go to St.
Vincent De Paul Church. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel

Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. (Mark
Fishing seems relatively easy, doesn’t it? You throw a line into the
water and hope a fish will bite the hook. But that simple notion undermines the skill necessary to be a true fisherman. When people pay
thousands of dollars to enter national fishing of dollars to enter national fishing contests, they aren't’ depending on simple luck. They’re
counting on the skills they have learned over a long period of time.
Similarly, when Jesus told Simon and Andrew and the others, “I will
make you fishers of men,” he meant that he wanted to teach them the
art of evangelization (Mark 1:17). And that’s what he wants to do
with us as well. He wants to teach us how to reach people with the
If you want to be a fisherman for Christ, you first have to know your
“fish.” You have to know that many of them have a hard time seeing
the beauty of the gospel because they are distracted by so many other
things. You have a know that sin may have hardened the hearts of
some. But you also have to know that God’s grace can penetrate the
veil over any person’ heart-as long as you, the fisherman, remain
humble and open to his grace.
So here are three suggestions that will help make you into a vessel of
grace: First, ask God to give you a desire to share his good news.
Second, find the courage to ask people, even strangers, “Can I pray
with you about anything? You’d be surprised at how many people are
open to a quiet, nonthreatening invitation. Third, invite people to join
you at Mass. Offer to come and get hem if they can’t make it on their
own. Take them out to breakfast afterward. Become a friend, and
your love for Christ will rub off on them.
Three simple steps. Three simple ways to let the grace of the Holy
Spirit work through you. So it isn’t too hard to be a fisherman after
“Lord Jesus, make me a vessel of your grace.”

Atuendo en la Misa
Es de buena educación vestirse bien para la Misa. Se evita
usar prendas rotas, o prendas especialmente reveladoras o
ajustadas. Pantalones cortos (shorts) no son ropa adecuada
para la Misa. Dichos atuendos pueden distraer a otros, o
incluso demostrar falta de respeto hacia Dios y a la iglesia.
Cuando entramos a la iglesia o asistimos a la Misa, estamos
en la presencia de nuestro Dios. Demostremos una actitud
de modestia y recogimiento.
