St. Vincent de Paul Parish
"Chalking the Door" on the Feast of the Epiphany
This is a particular blessing that is prayed over the home in a number of European cultures. It is one way that families and individuals can invite God’s blessing into their home and family life throughout the year.
This blessing is very simple, and involves a short reading from scripture, a tracing of “21+C+B+M+19” over the main entrance to the home in chalk, and a short prayer at the end. Each of the symbols in the chalk tracing stand for something significant.
If you would like a copy of the full instructions, scripture, prayer, and meanings, you can find it by clicking on the link below, or from the printed copies left in the foyer of the church.
We Are Getting A New Parish Directory!
There is no charge to participate in the new directory, and anyone who is a part of it will get a directory for FREE!
Furthermore, you are able to purchase your family photo for you and your family and friends if you so desire.
The easiest way to book your appointment to get your photos taken is right here, online! Click the link below, and you can get started! The online booking system is very straight forward and easy to use, even if you're not great with computers!
If this doesn't work for you, you can always call the church office during their regular office hours at 306-842-2129, or you can book after Mass on the weekend in the church foyer. However, we strongly encourage you to book online if you are able to.
Please note that the online system will not be available on Saturday evenings or Sundays, so that paper/pen bookings can be made after each of the Masses.
Thank you for being a part of making our directory complete!
