Liturgy This Week

5th Sunday of Lent - March 29, 2020

Today, we hear Ezekiel tell us God's message, "I will open your graves and have you rise from them." Then, Jesus finds out that his dear friend, Lazarus, has died and has already been in the tomb. Let's listen to hear what happens...

BTW, we don't have any coffee and donuts today. However, if you stick around 'til the end -- we do have a special treat for you!

A special thank you to our friends @ OneLicense.net who make sure that our artists get paid for their work. Here at St. V's, we are proud to maintain a license so that artists get paid.

We cannot gather together physically today, so we join together in spirit with:

It wouldn't be church without a collection, right?

Even though you can't join us in person right now, we still have our neighbors who are homeless who need food every day. We continue to provide food - with heightened levels of safety. These extraordinary measures cost us more money than usual. If you can assist us in our mission to our community, please donate what you can.

This week's Coffee and Donuts bonus track just for you:

Here is St. V's former Director of Liturgy/Music, Frank Karl, offering a tune while you get a cup of coffee and sit back down to listen.

Note: this is NOT a video of mass; the Eucharist is being celebrated privately on our behalf by the Archbishop and others (links can be found at archstl.org). This is a glimpse of what you would have heard and seen at St. Vincent's this weekend if we could have all been here together.
