Saint Vincent de Paul Needs : See Below

      Each week the St. Vincent de Paul Society distributes food to the needy. To supplement the first Sunday food collection, they regularly replenish the food bank. Each week they will let you know what item to add to your grocery list. This will help the community food bank run by our St. Vincent de Paul Society contribute in feeding the hungry.
       These week’s items are: Breakfast Cereal and/or Tuna Helper and /or Top Ramen Noodles. There is a box in the vestibule. Please put your contribution there and stay tuned for next week’s item

Second Collection

      Please support the Retirement Fund for Religious. A donor writes, “Your flyer touched my heart—seeing the retired religious, such memories surfaced.” Do you remember the sisters, brothers, or religious order priests who made a positive difference in your life? Today many are elderly and need assistance. Their religious communities struggle to meet retirement needs while continuing to serve the People of God. Please give to next week’s second collection.

About Taize

      A Taize worship originated in the hills of Burgundy in 1940 when Brother Roger, a Lutheran monk, sought a place for prayer and reconciliation amid the turmoil of World War II.
       Today the Community of Taize in France numbers more than 100 brothers, both Catholic and Protestant. Singing is one of the most essential elements of worship. Short songs, repeated again and again, give it a meditative character.
      Using just a few words they express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind.
       If you have not experienced this peaceful, contemplative meditation, please join us on Thursday, December 20th at 7pm here at St. Anthony's. All are welcome!
