Dear Parish Family,
November 25, 2020
Happy Thanksgiving! May we all take the time to remind ourselves of all the blessings we have and give thanks to God. As St. Gianna said, "The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment, and to Thank God for what he is sending us everyday in his goodness." 
Please enjoy watching this video of Fr. Matt hosting his Thanksgiving with some..."friends".

Shopping on Amazon? Shop through Amazon Smile to let your purchases generate donations for our parish at no cost to you. Amazon will automatically give 0.5% of your purchase to St. Patrick. What an easy way to help support the parish!  
Giving Tuesday is December 1st and it is a wonderful opportunity to share your blessings and express your thanks. Please consider supporting St. Vincent de Paul using our online giving system on our website or drop-off a check made payable to St. Vincent de Paul in the collection basket, or in our Dropbox outside the Parish Center. 
The Christmas Food and Gift Card Drive will be held on Friday, December 11th from 4-8PM. Drive by to view the lighted trees and nativity, wave at Santa and Mrs. Claus, pick up a treat for the kids and your pet, all from the comfort of your cozy car!

This is the season of giving and in the spirit and tradition of the giving tree, please bring non-perishables and/or gift cards for the Food Pantry to provide a meal or gift for families in need in Kendall County. Drop off will be from 4-8pm in the parish parking lot.

Virtual Baby Bottle Drive Extended! We are supporting the beautiful pro-life ministry of Waterleaf through their annual Baby Bottles for Life drive. The deadline for our virtual drive has been extended to Wednesday, December 16th.

Thank you for your generosity, we've raised almost $3,500 of our $5,000 goal so far!

Online Giving
Online Giving is an easy, consistent way to donate to our parish. It eliminates writing checks and the need to use the church envelope system. This "touchless" form of giving is convenient for the donor and very useful to the parish because income is received consistently. If parishioners are unable to join us for mass, the offerings received through Online Giving are very helpful in continuing to support our mission, meeting payroll, and paying our bills. To donate, please sign-in or register on our website here.
