Welcome to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Fort Wayne, IN 



Confessions are heard in the Parish Library and Church alcoves!

1 PM Masses will be celebrated in the Church AND the School parking Lot!







Alfred & Grace Salsa, natives of Bethlehem, will be with us December 5/6 with their beautiful olive wood handmade religious artifacts made by the Christian families in the Holy City.  Please stop by their display in the Parish Library and Gathering Space of the church.  You will find meaningful religious Christmas gifts for you and your loved ones.



Holy water is a sacramental, a reminder of the life of the Church expressed and celebrated through the sacraments.  Holy water can be used to bless people, places and things.  Due to COVID, we have removed all holy water from the church.  If you would like to have holy water for your home, please bring a container of water to Masses on December 12/13.  Our priests will bless the water you bring at the Masses that weekend.

Prayer for Priests
Father, you have chosen your priests from among us and sent them out to proclaim your Word and to act in your name.  For this great gift to your Church, we give you praise and thanksgiving.  Inspire them through prayer to live each day the mystery of your dying and rising, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
