Fifth Sunday Collection

St. Vincent de Paul

The weekend of April 29/30 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.

This is an opportunity for our SJV family to show mercy to others - as Pope Francis reminds us: “to become agents of this mercy”.

All the funding for this important mission comes from these special collections throughout the year, so they are critical to sustaining our work. 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!

Family Life Ministry

SJV Summer Campout: Save the date for the SJV Family Life Ministry Summer Campout that will be held from the evening of July 28th through noon of July 30th. Signups will begin in the early spring. If you want to sign up early you can reach out to Margaret Garber-Teeter email or call (925) 998-6046.

Mentor Couple Program: The Family Life Ministry is actively launching a Mentor Couple Program. The program will provide new couples an opportunity to engage with more experienced couples. Each mentor couple will be asked to help the new couple integrate into the community, provide introductions to ministries, and they may also assist with questions that come up around church or family life (guidelines will be provided). The time commitment will vary, but we ask that you plan at least 10-15 hours in a one year period.

Engaged couples will be the first target group that will get mentors, but we hope to expand the program to newly married couples, and possibly to new families, once the initial program is up and running smoothly.

We are looking for couples who have been together for at least 5 years, who are well established in their relationship, and who are active members of the parish. Information and training will be provided. If you are interested, please contact Jerry Mellin at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (925) 787-8865.

Relationship/Marriage Enrichment Series: Temporarily postponed. Stay tuned for a new date later in the year.  

Senior Social:  The first Senior Social was held on April 21st and was a great success. Subsequent socials will be held approximately every month. Stay tuned as the new dates will be posted soon. 

Mom's Ministry Spring Series: This spring, Family Life Ministry invites you to nurture yourself as much as you nurture others. Each meeting we'll discuss themes such as The Marriage Relationship, Our Roles as Mothers, and more. Connect, share your faith journey and offer support and friendship to other moms in different stages of life. All moms are welcome! Bring a friend! Wednesdays, April 26, May 10 and May 24th, 9:30 - 11:00 am. Mullen Commons Room 3 (downstairs).
