Welcome to the website of
St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament Church in Vestal, N.Y.

June 19, 2020:  Hello Everyone,

I would like to welcome you to our St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament webpage. It is great to be able to share with you that we have resumed public Masses and are having Mass at 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. on Sundays. We also have daily Mass at 9 a.m. on Tuesday through Friday. To attend Mass, we ask that you call the parish office (722-3988) and register with your name and phone number. This is being done for your health and safety. We also ask that you wear a mask and bring hand sanitizer to Mass.

It is great for us to be able to gather together as a family and celebrate the Lord’s presence in our midst at the Eucharist. This is the most important thing that we do as a parish family. It is important for us to be able to journey together as we strive to build God’s Kingdom on earth. It is my hope that this website will introduce you to our parish family and that it will enable you to be an active member of our St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament Parish family.

In Christ,
Fr. Jim
