Here is general Mass information during bad weather:
Weekends: In general, barring severe weather, there
will always be weekend Masses. Use common sense.
We have an obligation to worship on the Lord’s Day. We
do not have an obligation to put ourselves or others in
danger because of road conditions. We have lots of folks
living on side roads that may not be taken care of as well
as Hwy. 94. Use your good judgment.
Weekdays: The general rule is, if St. Vincent School is
cancelled, there is no Mass that day.
Has your address or phone number changed?
If you have a different contact phone number or
a new address than that listed in our directory,
please contact the Parish Office or fill this out
and drop in the collection basket.
Please keep us up-todate so that we can get in
touch with you if needed.
2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time
This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion virtually on demand in the United States. Thousands from the St. Louis Archdiocese
are expected to attend the annual March for Life Thursday, Jan. 22, in Washington, D.C.
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson will celebrate the annual memorial Mass and prayer vigil
at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. The Mass coincides
with the monthly Helpers of God's Precious Infants Mass. Afterward, there will be a Rosary procession to the nearby Planned Parenthood abortion facility.
Approximately 2,000 young people will go to the March for Life as part of the Office of Youth Ministry's Generation
Life pilgrimage Jan. 21-25. The trip includes special programming, including Mass with Archbishop Carlson. A live
blog of events will be at blog.stlouisreview.com/genlifestl. Also be sure to [email protected] on Twitter and Instagram
and on the Youth Ministry Office's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/genlifestl.
The U.S. bishops have announced a "9 Days for Life" novena Jan. 17-25 to encourage nationwide solidarity in prayer for
daily intentions, including for couples experiencing infertility, those mourning the loss of a child through abortion, children in need of adoptive homes, and for an end to abortion and use of the death penalty. Individuals can join by mobile
app, text message or email. For more information, visit www.9daysforlife.com.
For those not able to make it to the march, the Respect Life Apostolate and Office of Young Adult Ministry will hold a
Young Adult Pro-Life Holy Hour and Rosary at 7 p.m. Jan. 22 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. A gathering will be
held afterward in Boland Hall.
Other events on Jan. 22 include:
- Rosary for Life at St. Raphael the Archangel, 6040 Jamieson Ave. in south St. Louis. The Rosary will be prayed at
7:35 a.m., followed by 8 a.m. Mass.
- Pro-Life Mass, Rosary, and Holy Hour at Assumption, 403 N. Main St. in O'Fallon. Mass will begin at 8 a.m., followed by Rosary and Holy Hour.
- Holy Hour Prayer Vigil at 7 p.m. at St. Paul, 1223 Church Road in St. Paul.
Please also pray for our 8th graders, their parent chaperones, and Fr. Gene who will be leaving Tuesday for Washington,
for a safe journey!
Thanks so much to all who helped take down the outside decorations on our parish grounds this
past Saturday, and to those who helped take down the Church decorations on Sunday. Your stewardship of help is greatly appreciated. Which leads in to my second announcement:
The church was pretty packed at the 10am Mass when I made the announcement that we could
use some help taking down the decorations in Church. When I came back in after greeting everyone, there were 2 people. It was very disheartening. Thankfully, other people showed up from
other Masses. These are the folks who usually show up for everything else. Makes me wonder:
Will we ever get some of our younger folks or new folks to volunteer when we need help for Church-related things?
Time – What is Prayer?
Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – What is Prayer?
Prayer is, first and foremost, a heartfelt conversation and living relationship with God. “Whether
we realize it or not, prayer is the encounter of God’s thirst with ours. God thirsts that we may
thirst for Him” (CCC, 256). Prayer is the first essential element of a serious spiritual formation
process. “There is no substitute for a daily commitment to prayer” (Archbishop Carlson). How
does your prayer life stand right now?
Also: We have all of the sheets of those interested in a group. We are currently getting those
together. You will be contacted shortly. Finally, there are 2 things of note from Dynamic Catholic! for your Year of Prayer spirituality:
‘Decision Point’ is a series designed for Confirmation classes and consists of 72 5-minute videos. It is FREE for anyone
who wishes one (you just pay for postage); might be good for family watching or just to re-discover the teachings of the
Church for yourself. It’s available at http://dynamiccatholic.com.
Looking for something for Lent? You can also go to Dynamic Catholic! to receive a daily meditation during Lent from
Matthew Kelly. Go to http://dynamiccatholic.com/bestlentever/ to sign up.

“Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them.
’What are you looking for?’”
(John 1:38)
What are you looking for? Are you wasting your time looking for the
material comforts of the world? Or, is your heart longing for something deeper that can only be found by spending time with God?
Take time, each day, in silence and ask the Lord what it is that He
wants you to do.
