Fifth Sunday Collection

St. Vincent de Paul

This weekend will be the fifth Sunday collection or our St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Conference at St. John Vianney.

This is a primary way that our parish reaches out to those in need within our community in a very concrete and personal way. Through your generosity and support we provide food, gas, rent & utility assistance, clothing and furniture to families in the Walnut Creek/Concord area.

All the funding for this important mission comes from these four special collections throughout the year, so they are critical to sustaining our work. In particular, this collection will help provide Christmas food boxes for the families who are receiving gifts from the Angel Tree program. Please be generous in contributing so that we can continue to carry on the work of the Lord: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). Thank you!

Faith In Action Discussion

The Saint John Vianney Faith in Action ministry is pleased to announce a series of three evening discussions of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’: Care for Our Common Home at 7pm on each of Friday, October 28; Friday, November 11; and Wednesday, November 30. All are invited to participate in prayerful dialogue, engagement, and the challenge of discerning a response in their own lives. It is not too late to begin reading! Successive portions of this very readable book will be the focus of each meeting. The discussions will take place in the Vista Room of Mullen Commons.

Laudato Si’ is the encyclical Pope Francis published a year ago encouraging our understanding of the great spiritual importance of caring for Our Lord's Creation. He imparts the spiritual wisdom of Saint Francis, which is both uplifting and challenging. The Pope’s appeal is addressed to "every person living on this planet”, and he asks for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. Many churches have already begun on this new path through events and more recently celebrations of the anniversary of the encyclical.

These are the themes and topics of each evening:

  • -Friday, 10/28: Introduction and chapters 1-2; “Where We Are”
  • -Friday, 11/11: Chapters 3-4; “How We Got Here”
  • -Wednesday 11/30: Chapters “Where We Can Go From Here”

Questions for discussion will be taken directly from the encyclical, and all are welcome to bring questions of their own. Some of the questions for October 28 include:

  • -How can we acknowledge our individual contributions, greater or smaller, to the disfigurement and destruction of creation?
  • -How do we “include everyone” in a new dialogue on the future of our planet?
  • -What are the implications of the Pope’s statement “access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right”?
  • -How are we guilty of “consumerism”?
  • -What is the Catholic teaching of “the common destination of goods” and how does it relate to the Pope’s themes?

These discussions are hosted by the SJV FIA Books, Movies and Speakers Team, and will be facilitated by Greg Colley OFS. For questions or copies of Laudato Si’, please contact Greg Colley OFS at 415-271-7060 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

"Bring healing to our lives,

that we may protect the world and not prey on it,

that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction."

 Pope Francis, prayer from Laudato Si'
