Yoga at St. Vincent’s: Come participate in a gentle, yet challenging, chair yoga class. Chair yoga is practiced sitting in a chair, or standing using a chair for support. It’s ideal for those seeking the physical and mental benefits of yoga- stress reduction, increased flexibility and strength, and developing the mind-body connection. Contact the teacher, Janeen Chavis, at 646-763-7134 if you have any questions. Wear comfortable clothes and bring a bottle of water! Dates: 10/5, 10/19, 11/2, 11/16, 11/30, 12/14. Time: 6:30-7:30pm.

Lector Updates: Save the date for our pre-Advent Lector Gathering: Saturday, November 18, 1:00 to 3:45 (ends in time to attend the 4 PM Mass). Planning session coming up. If you would like to be trained as a new lector, come an hour early (12 noon) and we will train you! The new liturgical year begins with the first Sunday of Advent on the weekend of Dec. 2-3. To prepare for that, we’ve ordered lector books and “At Home with the Word” books. These will be sold after Masses starting in mid-October.

Mass count is this month for the Archdiocese. Please bring family and friends.

Book Discussion: Discussion of James Martin’s book Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity, will take place on Saturday, October 28, following the 4 p.m. liturgy. Books are available for purchase in the back of the church. Please see Margie Winters or Theresa Ta if you have any questions.
