Saint Vincent de Paul
Roman Catholic Church
The Founders of our Church were the Living Stones that back in 1894 started and built this beautiful Church. Please, next time you come to Church, take a good look at the single stones that stacked together make up this renown landmark, and think of each stone as one of the Irish immigrants, including poor plasterer laborers, that moved to this area and needed a place to celebrate Mass. The photo on the left represent each of our founders (names unknown on the stones) that built our church. We owe it to them for their sacrifices and we owe it to our future and the future of our children.
The photo on the right represent each of us (names of some of our present parishioners) that will continue the legacy of this church. We must become the single Living Stones of today, that put together will SAVE and Preserve this Holy Temple where we come to worship God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. You must know that most of those Irish workers were laborers and plasterers earning just enough to pay their rents and bring a meal to their family tables. Most did not own property, they were the poor in those days, yet they got together and through their sacrifices, hard work, and most important their faith in the Catholic Church built this wonderful and beautiful and renown Church where today we can come to worship Our Lord and call it our own. It becomes now our duty and responsibility to make sure we do not let our founders down so that their Church will stand the test of our times for generations to come financially, and as a loving and compassionate, and prayerful congregation. It is troublesome that Our Church, as we speak, is now operating with an ever increasing debt of $1.6 million. We do not seem to be able to catch up and continue to fall deeper behind. Not long ago the Bayonne community experienced the closing of Assumption Church; the reason and justification given was their indebtness. We, here at Saint Vincent, better start asking ourselves if we are going to let this happen to Our Church. Please read on about the 'We Are Living Stones' campaign and let's get together for a dialogue about what we can do to SAVE Saint Vincent Church before it's too late.
