This weekend, January 24 & 25, we have our monthly ‘Brown Bag’ collection to aid the St. Vincent de Paul Society. All proceeds from this collection will go directly to the local conference, which is a joint effort of St. Paul’s in Horseshoe Bay and St. John’s in Marble Falls. The Society of St. Vincent De Paul wants to thank the parishioners of St. Paul for the generous contribution of $2,334.00 that was collected on January 3 & 4. During the month of December, our conference assisted 29 families with utility bills, food and gas as well as housing expenses. The total expenditures for the assistance provided was $8,118.23. If you are contributing by check, please make it out to the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Come to the Finn this Sunday, January 25, after the 8:30 and 10:30 Masses and enjoy pancakes freshly made by our Knights of Columbus. There is no charge for the breakfast, but donations will be gladly accepted! All contributions will be used to pay down our loan to the Diocese.
