Celebrate the Joy of the Easter Season
The Easter Season is 50 days — longer than Lent. This Easter Season, we invite you to be intentional about proclaiming and celebrating the Risen Christ throughout this joyous season.
St. Vincent's Staff invites you to follow in the footsteps of the Risen Christ and his friends from the Resurrection to Pentecost.
Beginning Friday, April 23rd, the Stations of the Light will be available to walk and pray through in the church courtyard on Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Please remember to social distance.
We are 35% of the way to our Annual Catholic Appeal Goal this year!

Help us reach our goal so that any remaining dollars raised can go towards replacing the soap and paper towel dispensers on campus to TOUCHFREE!

Did you know that any shortfall to the Annual Catholic Appeal Goal is taken out of our Ordinary Income? Please help us reach this goal!
If you have already made your gift to the Appeal, thank you! If not, please return your pledge envelope today or donate online, click the link below.

Thank you!
Congratulations Class of 2021!

The Four Last Things:
Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hel
By Fr. Mike Schmitzl

Would you like to bring the Blessed Sacrament to our sick and homebound parishioners? There is a great need for this ministry right now. If you would like to be a part of this beautiful ministry please contact Katie at

“Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament … There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien
We are putting together a photo/memory book for Father Bill, to present to him at his last Mass. We invite all parishioners to send us a picture of them with Father Bill or a written note of appreciation or memory (or both). Please include the names of all family members in the email. These photos/messages need to be sent to Katie at by May 31st.
