Saint Vincent’s Corner
It's that time of year once again. Advent will start next week; but,
already your Vincentians are busy planning our big project of the
season, The Angel Tree, an ecumenical effort by the Florence/Andice
area churches.
This weekend you will find our tree up and decorated with more tags
than ever before as so many of our neighbors and friends struggle to
make ends meet. While the role of SVdP is typically to provide relief
with bills, at this time of year we strive to put smiles on the faces of
the children in our community who without your help might not
receive a present for Christmas.
Please take a tag or two from our tree and purchase the requested
gifts. Please do not wrap the present. We are asking that you place
the unwrapped gifts under the tree no later than December 7th.
Donations of tissue paper and gift bags are most welcome. We
appreciate your continued generosity as we serve the community.
Our Annual Wrap and Lunch Party is scheduled for Thursday,
December 11th in Carr Hall beginning at 9:00 AM. What a great way
to get into the giving spirit of Christmas! Mark your calendars now and
bring a friend. All are welcome. Lunch will be provided.
The Caring Place
The following items are currently in short supply: Canned Pinto
Beans; Canned Black Beans; Pork'n Beans; Canned Corn & Green
Beans, Pasta, Canned Fruit and Toiletry items.
~Brenda Tyrrell, Santa Rosa's Member Representative; The Caring Place
Advisory Council
Interested in volunteering during the holiday season?
The Caring Place is preparing for our annual Coats for Kids and
Holiday Meal Assistance. We are looking for volunteers who would
like to donate their time from November 3rd to November 26th and
help us spread the holiday spirit. Volunteer shifts will be from 10:00
AM – 3:00 PM. Instead of letting a child go through the winter
without a coat, Coats for Kids allows for children to choose a new coat
that matches their own personal style. Along with Walmart gift cards
for a coat, families receive a gift card to HEB to help them with holiday
meal costs. Please contact Nella Buffmire at 512-943-0726, or by
email at, [email protected] for further information.
Want to help keep a child warm this winter?
Last year The Caring Place gave new coats to 1416 children in need.
We are expecting our numbers to be higher this year. We need your
help. A donation of $20 will purchase a new coat for a child.
You can make a donation online at or send
checks to: The Caring Place, PO Box 1215, Georgetown, Texas 78626.

Gospel Meditation
This reading from Matthew gives us a to do list on how to care
for the poor. How do you care for the poor? Is there more you
can do?
Esta lectura del Evangelio de San Mateo nos da una lista de
cosas por hacer para cuidar de los pobres ¿Cómo cuida usted de
los pobres? ¿Existe algo más que usted pueda hacer?
Catholic Social Teaching Corner
This passage from Matthew might be considered a list of
essential duties for a follower of Christ. The Gospel points out
that Jesus speaks about the “nations” who gather, so we can see
this as both an individual and communal response to God. As
individuals and as a community, are we able to see Christ in the
needy, the least, the poorest and the forgotten? Our yes, to
accepting the Kingdom depends on our willingness to see and
respond to them as we would to Christ.
Este pasaje del Evangelio de San Mateo puede ser
considerado como una lista de deberes esenciales para un
seguidor de Cristo. El Evangelio señala que Jesús habló sobre las
“naciones” que se reúnen, así que podemos ver esto de ambas
maneras, como una respuesta individual o grupal a Dios. Como
individuos y como una comunidad ¿vemos a Cristo en los
necesitados, los más pobres y los olvidados? Nuestro Sí para
aceptar el reino depende de nuestra disposición de ver y
responder a estos hermanos nuestros, tanto como
responderíamos a Cristo.

Prayer for Preparing for Visitors to My Home
Although this prayer is for the rapidly approaching Advent season
this prayer serves as a reminder to keep everything in perspective this
Thanksgiving holiday.
Let us remember to give thanks for the many blessing that the Lord
has granted us. May we remember embrace the many blessings that
we have been granted. Focus on the time spent with loved ones and
remind ourselves not to get bogged down by the hustle and bustle of
the holidays.
Give thanks for the smallest things in life, from the air we breathe to
the sun in the sky. The birds singing in the trees, or even the noisy
neighbors/kids next door.
They are coming! Oh, dear Lord, like the Wisemen
wandering toward the stable, visitors are heading to my
house. I am so excited about this visit. But I can get so sidetracked about how my house looks, or the food that I serve. I
can only keep this prayerful with your help.
Help me to stay humble this Advent and Christmas
season. You invite us into the humility of the stable where you
were born. Help me to remember that humble-ness and the
simple joy of your birth. Let me stay focused on my guests, not
on myself and my worries about my house. Guide me in
rejoicing in who these people are and in loving them freely.
