St. Vincent de Paul Parish
Letter from Pope Francis
In response to the devastating report on clergy sexual abuse and subsequent coverups released by the Pennsylvania Grand Jury, Pope Francis has taken the unprecedented step of issuing a detailed letter to the People of God.
Paper copies of this letter will be available at the church, or you can read it by going to the link below:
We are a community alive with the Good News of Jesus Christ, celebrating joyfully together, and reaching out in justice and love to share our faith with the world.
In communion with the Holy Father, our Bishop,
and the teachings of the Universal Church;
we, the members of St. Vincent de Paul Parish,
are a community of hope and joy,
renewed each time we celebrate the Eucharist,
the reason for our existence and the source of our growth.

With your help we strive to be a scent free church! Many of our parishioners suffer from adverse affects to scents from perfumes, lotions, after shave products, essential oils, etc. We appreciate you refraining from the use of scented products when attending St. Vincent de Paul. Thank you !
