Snowy and Icey Weather Alert:

  • If Shelby Eastern Schools or Shelby Central Schools are closed or on a 2 hour delay because of snow or ice there will not be an 8:00am Mass on Wednesday at St. Vincent Church. If Shelby Eastern or Shelby Central Schools are cancelled on Wednesday due to snow or ice, St. Vincent will not have Religious Education classes on Wednesday evening.

St. Vincent Children’s Collection

  • There has been considerable concern that the Ushers will accidentally jab a small child while taking up the collection because the children run in between them. In order to remedy this, all children who have an offering will come up when Father Mike calls the children up to be dismissed for Liturgy of the Word. Then the 2nd graders on up can go back to their seats and the younger ones can leave after being blessed by Father. We will see how this works. Thank you for your cooperation.

St Vincent de Paul Endowment Fund:

  • When someone donates to these Endowment Funds, it is leaving a legacy to the future of St. Vincent de Paul Parish and Cemetery.


  • We are temporarily suspending the Wednesday afternoon Rosary. Please watch the bulletin for a future update.

Children’s Liturgy in action. Children up to First grade are welcome


  • St. Vincent’s Parish has joined St. Joseph Parish on Flocknote. This is an easy way for us to communicate with the most people. There were 34 people who had signed themselves up with St. Joseph. I signed up 43 more people because they have children in Religious Education or some
    other ministry. If you do not receive Flocknotes from St. Joseph and St. Vincent and want to receive them, please go to and sign up or call Sr. Joan 317-398-4028 or 812-455-9348 or if you are receiving them and wish you didn’t, please let Sr. Joan know and she will take you off..

When to Call the Priest:

  • When a loved one is ill, please remember to call Father Mike before it is too late to give last rites. Many times people wait too long, thinking things will get better or waiting until as close to the very end as possible. No need! Call Father as soon as things are going downhill. Remember that a per-son can receive the Sacrament of the Anointing many times in his or her life.
