For more than two centuries...
Catholic families from throughout the region, along with parishioners, alumni and neighbors, have looked to the Saint Vincent community as a place of worship, prayer, and lifelong friendships. Alumni of Saint Vincent Preparatory School, Saint Vincent College and Saint Vincent Seminary frequently speak about their enduring friendships and feelings of home and belonging in recalling their years at Saint Vincent.
The Benedictine monks continue to provide guidance and care for parishioners at Saint Vincent Parish and for all Catholic families seeking a final resting place for loved ones. The Mary, Mother of Mercy Mausoleum Chapel offers a place for quiet meditation to remember and pray for departed loved ones.
The Benedictine community has educated students at the Prep School, Saint Vincent College and Saint Vincent Seminary. Monks have provided pastoral care for parishioners and for those from many regional parishes. Today’s monks—and the Benedictines of the future—will provide perpetual care and prayers for those who choose to “come home” to Saint Vincent for their final resting place.
A quiet walk through the cemetery will reveal headstones from many generations.
