|Bishop Connolly dedicates the new Holy Ghost Church in 1964.|
St. Vincent de Paul Parish, originally the home of Holy Ghost Parish, was dedicated by Bishop Connolly on 12 April, 1964. As directed by canon law, it retains its original dedication to the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, although the name of the parish was changed at the time of the merger. We are the first parish in our diocese that is trilingual from its foundation, celebrating Mass each Sunday in English, Spanish and Portuguese, and also maintaining the French-Canadian tradition of St. Joseph's Parish. St. Joseph and Holy Ghost Parishes both had active social ministries which are continued in our service to the poor and needy in our community, following the model of our patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
