Voting: Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship
"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." - Pope Francis, 9/16/13
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 3; you do not need to bring an ID. (ID rules may vary for absentee ballots and first-time voters.)
You can vote by mail for any reason. Your ballot request must be received by Tuesday, October 27 and your completed ballot must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, November 3 and received no later than Friday, November 20. The U.S. Postal Service recommends mailing ballots at least a week before Election Day. You can hand-deliver your ballot to drop-off locations or any polling place in your county no later than 8 p.m., Tuesday, November 3.

California voters will be asked to vote on 12 statewide ballot measures in the 2020 General Election on November 3, 2020.

Each year the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's St. Victor's Conference raises funds for our parish's Christmas Giving Tree. In the past, our parishioners have provided gifts for our neighbors in need and we then organize, wrap and distribute those gifts. But this year, due to Covid, we had to change our process. So rather than gifts, we are asking for monetary donations to this fund so we can purchase gift cards for each member of our families. Our desire is to continue our tradition of providing needy families with a little something to open at Christmas. Since 1946 The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been helping the needy of Santa Clara County. We help anyone and everyone regardless of race, creed, religion or sexual orientation. All proceeds donated will be used exclusively to directly provide to the needy and all donations are tax deductible. Help us help others during this Christmas season!
