Welcome and thank you for your interest in the parish of St. Vincent de Paul! Whether you’re just visiting the website, looking for a new parish home, returning to the practice of your Catholic faith, or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we’re happy you are here!
From the moment I was appointed pastor of St. Vincent de Paul in May of 2014, I have been humbled by the generosity and support offered by so many in our parish community. A parish is a community of believers, a spiritual family, there to support and love one another. It is a place to grow spiritually and to put your faith in action.
The parish staff and I look forward to answering any questions you may have. You are always welcome to join us for Mass or for any of the events on our calendar. I look forward to connecting with you and hopefully seeing you in the life of the parish.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Fr. Karl Loeb

During “normal” times, we have so many faith-filled, community-building, and just plain old fun activities to participate in. We’ll all look forward to things like coffee hours, participating in various ministries, enjoying a nice date night with your spouse, or even winning some free meat at our hilarious Meat Raffle!
