We are grateful for all donations, large or small! Thank you to all our wonderful parishioners who so faithfully support our ministries! WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE AN ADORATION CHAPEL

where the Blessed Sacrament is in Exposition 24 hours a day. Dedicating oneself to a holy hour in our adoration chapel provides the time and space to nurture our relationship with Jesus that brings us peace. At present, there are over 40 hours that do not have regularly scheduled adorers. More than half of these hours are between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. with 18 of these hours being overnight. Would you consider taking one? Would you be willing to dedicate yourself to an hour in the chapel as your spiritual resolution for the new year? If you already have an hour, would you consider a second? Ultimately, this is not about filling slots in a day – this is about our commitment to be with Jesus fully present in the Eucharist. Please consider signing up for a holy hour by filling out a form found in the Adoration chapel, or online at The form is available in English and Spanish. You can contact Chris Ojeda by sending email to or by calling 512.413.0674 with any questions.

2017 AT THE ST. LOUIS FARM | As 2017 begins, make it

a resolution to help out at St. Louis Farm!

We'll have refreshments, fellowship, seasoned volunteers to guide you, and you can help us provide fresh vegetables for the Food Pantry!

THE ST. LOUIS PARISH LIBRARY | While most New Year's

resolutions are sheer drudgery and require a lot of hard work to accomplish, usually ending in failure, your parish library can make things easier.

"Where might I find such a place?" you may say. Why, your parish library; that's where! Come check us out! You can't fail with this New Year's resolution! The parish library staff wish our parishioners a blessed New Year in which you remain happy, healthy and filled with the Spirit.

SOMOS BENDECIDOS DE TENER UNA CAPILLA DE ADORACIÓN donde el Santísimo Sacramento esta expuesto

24 horas al día. Dedicándonos a una hora santa en la capilla de adoración nos da el tiempo y el espacio para cultivar nuestra relación con Jesús la cual nos trae la paz. Actualmente hay 40 horas que no están asignadas a un adorador regular. Más de la mitad de este tiempo cae entre las 7 a.m. y las 8 p.m. con 18 horas durante la noche. ¿Consideraría inscribirse para una de estas horas? ¿Estaría dispuesto a dedicarse a una hora en la capilla como su resolución espiritual para el año nuevo? Si ya esta inscrito para una hora, ¿consideraría inscribirse para una hora adicional? Ultimadamente, la meta no es de solo llenar las horas en un día --- sino dedicarnos a estar con Jesús verdaderamente presente en la Santa Eucaristía. Por favor considere inscribirse para una hora santa completando el formulario que se encuentra en la capilla de Adoración, o en-línea en adoration. El formulario esta disponible en ingles y español. Por favor comuníquese con Chris Ojeda por correo electrónico a o llamando al 512.413.0674 si tiene alguna pregunta. LOS TALLERES DE ORACIÓN Y VIDA, desarrollados por el

Padre Ignacio Larrañaga, son un método práctico para aprender a orar de una manera ordenada y progresiva, basándose en la biblia y teniendo a Cristo como el centro.

La sesión informativa se llevará a cabo el sábado 14 de enero a las 4 pm. Para mas información contactar a Mónica Martinez a (512) 289-2067.

made 6 home visits during the week ending on 22 November. We helped 2 families with utility bills, 3 with rent, 1 with a furniture voucher and 1 copay for a neighboring conference. One case was that of an Iraqi refugee family of six that had had to flee to this country after working for the US in Iraq. He has a job which is adequate to pay their rent and utilities, and they do get a small amount of food stamps, but they were in need of more food and some furniture. We told them about the food pantries in the area and invited them to attend our Thanksgiving Festival of Giving. Because of your support, we were able to give them a $300 furniture voucher to the SVdP Family Store. Our volunteers concluded their visit by praying for them.
