Schedule Your Picture for Parish Jubilee Directory


We are producing a 50th Jubilee pictorial family album! There will be photos from the Jubilee events.

Do I order the directory? No it is free for you after you have your picture taken.

Do I have to pay for the photos? No you will receive one complimentary 8x10 photo.

You will be able to view your images electronically immediately after photography. At that time, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits to share with family and friends. We will also be recording an audio/visual oral history and will ask for you to spend a few minutes in front of the camera to share your experiences/reflections here at St. John Vianney.  We will edit these for use during our year-long jubilee celebration!

  Click here or Press the button above to sign up online for your Picture Time.  There are lots of dates and times available in August.

  If you have any questions or problems signing up for a time for your pictures and oral history, please contact Debbie in the office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or at (925)939-7911x103. We look forward to seeing you!


 To make our directory a great success we need volunteers. Debbie Mellin is coordinating the volunteers for our new directory.  If you are interested in helping during our photography sign-ups, telephoning our members, recording oral histories or serving as a host or hostess during the actual photography sessions, contact Debbie at the information above.
