PREPARES (Pregnancy and Parenting Support) is an initiative of the Catholic Bishops of Washington State, which is open to all people. It provides services to pregnant women, fathers, and their families by walking the journey from pregnancy to their child’s fifth birthday.  Please consider joining us in walking the journey with families in your own parish community. To learn more about PREPARES at St. Vincent please contact Katie and she will get you in contact with Tammy or visit the Prepares website at

Great news, our Prepares program has begun. Prepares is a nurturing response of the Catholic community in Washington state, open to all, to provide meaningful, local and sustainable support to mothers, fathers, and families as they nurture their children through pregnancy and early childhood. Volunteers at the PREPARES program offer support and activities for families from pregnancy to their child’s fifth birthday. We are looking for volunteers to help and donate items for our Prepares Boutique. If you would like to volunteer please let Katie know. Below is a list of items we need. You can drop them off at the Church before or after Mass or the Parish Office Monday - Thursday from 10am-3:30pm.
