St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church
Serving the West Park Community since 1922
Welcome to our Parish Community!
We live in time in a society where many of us walk through life with their heads down or buried in our cell phones, our screens, or our own agendas. Our technology these days is great, it can be very helpful, and a real blessing, but has it also ended up, in the way we have come to use it, driving us farther away from one another? Have we ever seen two people, sitting right next to each other, and instead of conversing with one another, they’re staring at their screens? I know that I can be as guilty of it as anyone else. With our addiction to our screens, we can live with someone, we can work with someone, we can go to church with someone, we can sit next to someone, all without ever truly encountering them. Who might we make an effort to encounter this week or live with? The cashier at the store? The poor? An elderly or sick neighbor or friend? A fellow parishioner? Maybe we rather than just noticing each other, we might take the time to put down our screens, and encounter each other. And maybe we might start by simply asking how are you we’re going out of our way to say hi to someone we have never said hi to before.
   Just a friendly reminder that there will no 8:30 AM Daily Mass from July 22nd through 26th.  Weekday Masses will resume on Monday, July 29th. We apologize for any inconvenience.
   The Installation of Fr. John Pfeifer as the 7th Pastor of SVdP Parish will take place on Sunday, August 11th, at 9:00 AM, with Bishop Nelson J. Perez as the principal celebrant.

ADVISORY: There will be NO 8:00 & 10:30 AM Masses on Sunday, August 11th ONLY! We will resume the normal schedule the following weekend.
   An avenue of our encountering each other will be our upcoming parish listening sessions. These will be led by someone else and will be a chance for Fr. John to listen and get to know more about who we are, our story, our vision, and where we hope to go. Please plan on attending one of the sessions. The sessions here at SVdP will be Sunday, August 18th at 11:45 AM following the 10:30 AM Mass and Monday, August 19th at 7 pm. Both sessions at each parish will be the same, so, though you can certainly come to both, you only need to come to one.
