Welcome to St. Vincent and St. Paul Parishes and St. Juan Diego Mission. As many of you know, in conjunction with the Diocese of Spokane at large, we have been working hard in these last several months to discern a new pastoral plan for our parishes. This effort has been given the name "Know, Love, Serve." As many of those in the agricultural business have been working on their harvest, reaping what had been sown, we too are ready to start reaping the fruits of our discernment of our pastoral planning for our parishes. One of the fruits of this new plan, as you can see, is the updating of our website. It is our hope that in the next year we will experience many new and exciting things in our communities, from faith formation to building projects, from greater communication within our parish family to outreach to those outside. I’m very excited to see how all of our efforts will be used by our Lord in coming months and years. Every good thing we have, of course, comes from God and leads back to him. May he continue to bless you, your families and our parish family so that we may all come to know, love and serve God in this life and be happy with him forever in the next. May God bless you!
