The Rev. Vince O’Neill, known to most in the Diocese as a longer-serving former Rector of St. Timothy’s, ‘Aiea, died Monday, May 1, 2023, in Nevada. He is predeceased by his wife, Maria.
Fr. Vince also served for six years as a Canon at The Cathedral of St. Andrew, and was also well-known as a Honolulu Police Chaplain, substance abuse counselor, Cursillo leader, and for his significant involvement with the Institute for Human Services (IHS). He was first ordained in the Roman Catholic tradition in 1964, and his orders were received by our Diocese in 1976. Fr. Vince retired from St. Timothy’s in 2008.

The Rt. Rev. Elizabeth Gardner will celebrate the Burial Office on Saturday, May 27, 2023, at 10:00 AM, at Epiphany Episcopal Church, 10450 Gilespie Street, Las Vegas.

O God, who hast made thy servant Vincent to flourish among the Ministers of Apostolic Succession in the honourable office of a Priest: grant, we beseech thee, that he may also be joined with them in perpetual fellowship. Through thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
