St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church
Serving the West Park Community since 1922
Welcome to our Parish Community!

   WELCOME and THANK YOU for visiting our website! We especially hope you're enjoying the streaming of the 10:30 AM Sunday Mass, as well as the Divine Mercy Novena on the first Sunday of the month. In the near future, we hope to have the ability to allow our guests on our website to be able to make virtual visits to the Church on a 24-hour basis. Just think...if you would like to spend some quiet time with Our Lord but can't get to a Church, you'll be able to access a live view of our Sanctuary!
   We've added a link in the menu above if you would like to make a donation to assist us in covering the cost of providing and improving this service. Also, we are in the process of replacing the handicap ramp to our Church to allow easier access for those who need it. If anyone would wish to donate to this project, it would be greatly appreciated! I thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide!

 May God Bless You Always!

GOSPEL REFLECTION:  25th Sunday of Ordinary Time
   Jesus calls forward a child and teaches the Twelve that to receive a child in Jesus’ name is to receive both Jesus and the One who sent him. We might easily fail to understand the significance of this action. In first-century Palestine, children were without status or power, possessing no legal rights. In this action, Jesus is teaching his disciples and us that when we serve the least ones among us, we serve Jesus himself. Who are the people without power or status in our society that Jesus is calling us to serve? Do we do so willingly? Jesus teaches that God’s judgment of us will be based on this criterion alone.
   Join us on Saturday, October 6th at 12 Noon as we continue the traditional Blessing of all Animals. The blessing will take place at the front steps of the Church. This blessing takes place in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
