"Strive to live content in the midst of those things that cause your discontent. Free your mind from all that troubles you, God will take care of things. You will be unable to make haste in this [choice] without, so to speak, grieving the heart of God, because he sees that you do not honor him sufficiently with holy trust. Trust in him, I beg you, and you will have the fulfillment of what your heart desires" (St. Vincent de Paul, Letters).
To all members of the Vincentian Family and to all the people of good will – Happy Saint Vincent Day! Let us desire to work for the poor with dedication and love of St. Vincent, Our Founder!

Sunday, June 26th, 2011, is the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. As in the past years, we invite you to participate in the Corpus Christi procession. After the 11:30 Mass we will exit the church onto the street to manifest our faith in the true and real presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. We will process from the church up Humboldt Street, up Nassau Avenue to Russell Street and back down Driggs Avenue to the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. We request that those organizations and families who prepared altars in past years, honor Christ in a similar manner this year. We invite parish organizations and all the faithful to participate in the procession. We encourage parents to bring their children, and in particular the First Holy Communion Children and the Krakowianki and Górale, Altar Servers to participate in the procession on that day. Let our presence express our gratitude to Christ for being with us always in such a mysterious way, as is the Eucharist.
On the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, due to the procession, there will not be a 1:00PM Mass.
