An Invitation to Serve from St. Vincent de Paul @

IHM

Are you a naturally caring, compassionate, and giving person? If so, our St. Vincent de Paul Conference would like you to come and share your gifts with people in need by joining us here at IHM. We are looking for new members, men, women, young people, from our parish community. You probably know we have a food pantry, where Christians from many religions, not just Catholic, give food to low-income families in Brentwood. While we appreciate everyone’s help, we desperately need more SVdP members to help with the other work we do to serve the poor. Our Society has adopted the phrase “no work of charity is foreign to our Society”, which helps us target our Service to the Poor. Being a part of our Conference, means you will be doing God’s work, you will grow Spiritually, be working with a dedicated group of Vincentians and make new friends. Doing God’s work is not always easy but does have its rewards.If you are interested in learning more, please contact us at: svdpihmbrentwood@gmail.com Message from St. Vincent de Paul On the last Sunday in June, the 2nd collection will be for St. Vincent de Paul here at Immaculate Heart of Mary. St. Vincent de Paul at IHM is very grateful to the parishioners for their ongoing  support in the work we do to help those less fortunate. As you know we have a food pantry every Friday morning, but we also do a lot of other work. We try to assist those who come to us for various types of help, often overdue bills, usually caused by someone in the family out of work for some time, a sickness in the family, a death in the family, or other things which make them unable to pay their normal bills. We try to be very compassionate, but many times the amount due is well over our ability to help. We often must go to other agencies to partner with to try to come up with the necessary funds to avoid eviction, utilities shut off, etc. Bless you for your generosity. For the weekend of July 14, please bring canned tuna and other meats. THANK YOU! For the weekend of July 21, please bring canned soups. THANK YOU! +++ Para el fin de semana del 14 de julio, por favor traigan tuna y otras carnes enlatadas. GRACIAS! Para el fin de semana del 21 de julio, por favor traigan sopas enlatadas. GRACIAS! THANK YOU! GRACIAS! SALAMAT! We wish to acknowledge the parishioners for not parking in red zones. The Brentwood Police Department will still be checking on illegal parked cars, so please don’t risk getting a ticket. Deseamos agradecer a los feligreses por no estacionar en las zonas rojas. El Departamento de Policía de Brentwood, seguirá revisando los autos estacionados ilegalmente, así que por favor no corran el riesgo de recibir una multa.

Por favor necesitamos su cooperación. Padre Quang Medical Emergency We have had medical emergencies during two of our Masses . When the ambulance and fire department arrived, they had to maneuver around cars illegally parked. This caused a delay in their response time for the emergency. Every second counts in an emergency situation. Please, do not double park or park in any red zones when you come to Mass. You may be saving a life! Soon we will have signs posted and the Brentwood Police Department will be ticketing.
