Why Do Catholics Do That?

How do Catholics bless themselves with Holy Water?
         The practice of blessing oneself with holy water harkens back to the washing rituals of the Old Testament Jews, who had to bathe before entering the temple. Today when we bless ourselves with holy water, it brings to mind our own baptism. It was at our baptism that our souls were washed clean of original sin and we were officially made members of the Church. We also received the gift of faith. In blessing ourselves, we renew our baptismal promise.

Thank You for Helping Those in Need

        St. Vincent de Paul wishes to thank those who contributed to last month's collection. The funds for this collection go towards the Food Pantry which helps with local support for those in need. For the month of March, we helped 82 adults, 29 children and dispensed 90 bags of groceries. Your donations go a long way to help the needy; all donations stay here in our community. The members of St. Vincent de Paul thank you for your generosity.
