Personal and hygiene goods are needed. Please place your donations in the labeled bags and return them to church at the masses on the weekend of July 16
. The labels will list suggestions for needed products. Thanks for your generosity. God Bless!
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul
This weekend, July 2 & 3, we will 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 St. Paul/St. John conference only serves those people living in the 78654 & 78657 zip codes. There is a great need for help for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Their funds are limited and the financial needs are overwhelming. If you are contributing a check, please make it out to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Every little bit helps! Thank you for your generosity.
Serving the needy in zip codes 78654 and 78657

Your generous gifts, totaling $1,471.00, is an act of solidarity with the universal Church. It is answering the call to become a witness of charity, globally! Thank you and may God Bless you.
