Every Sunday morning, rain or shine, we serve coffee, donuts and fresh fruit after each Mass.
Ministers of coffee and donuts are always needed. This is a great opportunity for adults, teens and children to share in friendship, fellowship, and conversation. Working side-by-side pouring joe and serving dough!
Pick your Sundays and Masses to enjoy a Sunday morning in the courtyard with fellow parishioners.

Hundreds even thousands of Starling Wings;
creating a symphony sailing across the Sky,
a Heavenly dance for those of us fortunate enough
to be at this place… at this time…
Look up, See the Dance, The Illusion is Other Worldly,
We are awestruck… this is God Centered,
If we are so moved we are touched in the vulnerable and
“All is Place”.
I wonder… does God observe our “Soul Filled Prayers” in this way.
As a Beautiful Symphony across the Universe, Presented to Praise.
We are; “Dancing in Meditation, A Prayerful Harmony, A Moving
Melodic Filled Hymn” addressed to THE LORD…
Murmurings in our Glorious and Melodic Ribbon of Song
Our Prayers Gliding Through Space…
God is Everywhere…
God is Within Us…
God is Love…

Ushers welcome us as we arrive to worship, helping us find our way around the worship space and into comfortable seats, facilitating our processions (especially at Communion), and handing out worship aids and bulletins. They also help all of us be responsible stewards by taking up the collection at the liturgy. Ushers are especially needed at the 11:00 am Mass. Contact: Paul Collier

St. Vincent De Paul is our parish’s outreach ministry to the poor, hungry, homeless, struggling and needy in our midst. Our parish conference is one of many in Ventura County, joining with nearly 400 volunteers who all combined have helped 14,000 people this past year.
Every day our on-call ministers talk and meet with individuals and families who need financial assistance and resources to have a meal or safe shelter, to pay a utility bill, rent, medical bill, or for gas. This wonderful work would not have been possible without God’s help, your generous contributions and the volunteer efforts of our Vincentians.

From a current member of the ministry:
"Being a volunteer is a blessing. It makes me aware of the blessings in my own life. Viewing the world through the eyes of the less fortunate keeps me grounded and more aware of the people around me. Our parish conference very special. The love and support we receive from our fellow Vincentians is wonderful and the service itself keeps faith in front of everything you do. Come and join us and count your blessings."
