We do not want wrapped presents, nor will we be delivering presents to their homes. Gift cards, such as Walmart, Speedway Gas Cards, and grocery store gift cards, would be greatly appreciated.

Please donate by placing new children’s (assorted infants to teens) coats, gloves, and hats in the receptacle in the back of church. For those who want to participate but are currently unable to attend church services, the Knights of Columbus will pick up directly from your home.

St. Vincent de Paul Haven News:
We want to express our gratitude for your past and future support of our SVDP mission. Due to ongoing concerns regarding large public gatherings, we have prayerfully discerned that it is best to cancel our previously postponed “2020 Spring Fling”. We intend to have an in-person event in March 2021, with the help of some online software. There will also be an option to participate virtually (including a virtual silent auction). This will allow for you to participate as you feel comfortable, and expand the options for friends, family, and donors, who are unable to attend in-person.
Many of you have been very generous already with sponsorships for the 2020 event. For those who have given sponsorships, purchased tickets, or tables, or donated auction items in 2020, those gifts will be recognized during the "2021 "Spring Fling” Auction Dinner. We will be honoring the great work of both Sarah Reese Wallace, and Chuck Dilbone.
We need your help, COVID required us to remain open 24/7 and increased our staffing and supply needs. This increased our costs while our fundraising dollars fell by approximately $100,000. In response, your help is needed to make the "2021 March Spring Fling” the largest, most successful fundraising event in our history. Please prayerfully consider making your gift to the “2021 Spring Fling” now, whether in the form of a sponsorship, a table, a ticket(s), a donation of any amount, a monthly pledge, or simply your continued prayers.
Again, thank you to those who gave toward our “2020 Spring Fling”, we humbly ask that you give again to this event. We would not be successful without your assistance and prayers. For more information about the event, please email [email protected] or call 740.670.0822
Volunteers needed for the new St. Leonard streaming service:
St. Leonard will be streaming its services very soon, and we are looking for volunteers to help record the Mass with our new digital technology. One person will be needed to assist with each Mass. Training will be provided by the streaming technology installer in November. Please let the church office know by November 9 if you would like to assist the parish in this way. We welcome anyone who would like to help with this. Youth are welcome and invited to help with streaming as well. Getting our services out to the public via technology is very important during these challenging times.
