At the end of this month, Fr. Richard Lawrence will retire after 43 years as the beloved pastor of St. Vincent. He will celebrate one last Mass as pastor on Sunday, February 26 at 10:30 AM. (There will only be one Mass on that day.) We will celebrate him and what we as a community have become under his guidance through this special liturgy.
- Colleen McCahill, our pastoral associate, will be the liturgy planner, working together with Fr. Lawrence to create the liturgy.
- To give the occasion a greater sense of pageantry, our music director Joe Organ has engaged the same brass musicians that played at our 175th anniversary Mass.
- We will then gather for a final parish photo with our 13th pastor.
- And finally, we will then come together for brunch in the undercroft following Mass.
If you can help on the day of the celebration, either by bringing food or by volunteering your time, sign up here.
