Community Life Ministries

Called & Gifted

St. Vincent parish is a “Called and Gifted” parish.  The Called and Gifted Workshop is an opportunity for each of us to deepen our relationship with Jesus and to discover God’s plan for our lives.  In the Called and Gifted discernment process you will learn that every lay Christian has been given a unique and deeply personal call to work with the Lord.  Discerning your call will give you a new perspective on your life and will help you to be more fulfilled in your work, your volunteer activities at St. Vincent’s and your own personal relationships.  Workshops are held periodically at the parish.  For more information, contact the parish office at
489-3537 ext. 208 or email dschuerman@saintv.org.
