The volunteers of St. Vincent the Paul would like to thank our local farmers for their donations of fruit and vegetables for our clients at Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our thanks go out to Dwelley Farms, Wolfe Ranch and Simoni & Massoni Farms.
Their generosity is greatly appreciated!!

Parish Mission / Misión Parroquial:

With Mary, we seek to know Christ better and to make him better known through our words and actions.
Con María, nosotros buscamos conocer mejor a Cristo y hacerlo conocer mejor a él por medio de nuestras acciones y palabras.


STARTING August 6th, we will renew our annual consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. You can redo the 33 days to Morning Glory and consecration will take place at the Birthday of Mary on September 8th.
Let us live our consecration!



Once again we are in the warm weather, and a reminder to everyone to dress modestly when coming to Mass.
Please, men, no tank tops.
Women and teenage girls, please no short shorts, or low cut skimpy tops.
Remember who you are coming to encounter at Mass, it is the Lord.

De nuevo el clima caliente ha llegado y les quiero recordar a cada uno de
ustedes que se vistan modestamente cuando vengan a la Misa.
Por favor, señores, no usen camisetas sin mangas.
Señoras y jovencitas, no pantalones cortos, o camisetas muy descotadas.
Acuerdense a quién vienen a ver y a recibir en la Misa, es el Señor.
