Welcome to St. Vincent dePaul Roman Catholic Church! We have been a beacon in Holiday, Florida for over 50 years. We welcome all people to our community and we have been called one of the most welcoming parishes around. Come see what this special group of Christians are all about!
We will be having our Coffee Social on Friday morning from 8am to 11am. All are invited for coffee and donuts.
We will be having the Ladies Auxiliary card party on Monday day October 26th from 11-3pm. Cost is $7.00
This Sunday 10/25 the parish celebrates the joy of the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation. We pray with Josef Cordero, Derek Dang, Maya Muzyka, Nhan Nguyen, Anthony Ryan Phi Nguyen, Mia Stansell, Christopher Soltys.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy your consolations. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
All are invited to take part in our parish Fall Festival this coming Sunday 10/25. Enjoy the season in giving thanks for the harvest. Families are invited to “Trunk and Treat” along with our parish ministries outside in the Parking Lot after classes at 12:30.
Decorate the trunk of your car and greet the children with a treat for them to enjoy. Food will be served in Father Farrell Hall and games in the classrooms to allow for social distancing.
A sign up sheet is available in the Hall during our gathering before class at 11 so that we know you’re coming and we can save a space for you. All is free so come and join the fun!
Thanksgiving Dinner on November 19th from 5-7pm. We will only be allowed to seat 125 people at this time, BUT we will be having TAKE OUT orders also.
Anyone that does not want to join in the group but would like a dinner, they can get theirs TO GO. The price of the tickets are $8.00 per dinner.
In preparation to receive the sacrament of Confirmation our candidates were asked to choose the name of a special saint, one that would represent the spiritual transformation that they would experience at the time of their Confirmation.
They were encouraged to select a saint who they regard as a role model and with whom they would seek guidance and protection on their journey of faith. The candidates were asked to prepare and share with us a brief history of their chosen saint and to explain why they selected their saint for their Confirmation name.
THE JOURNEY, A WAY TO DEEPEN YOUR EXPERIENCE OF JESUS
Preparations are underway to form groups in our parish to provide everyone an opportunity to sign up for The Journey, a six-week process of sharing, prayer, and reflection that can help everyone—active parishioner or not—grow in faith.
The Journey brings us into contact with those who knew and encountered Jesus; through videos and sharing, their experience becomes real in our day, in our personal lives, in our relationships with God and others.
There is still time this week to call the parish office and get more information to join others for a personal experience of Jesus. Sign up and see what it is all about!

As We Begin to Open the Church
Believe that God is attentive to our prayers, just as we are attentive to God's will in our lives. Together, we contribute our part in staying protected from the spread of COVID-19.
On Monday, May 11 at St Vincent de Paul, weekday Mass resumed at 8:30 AM. With careful attention to the directives of Bishop Gregory Parkes during this pandemic, we are asked to take the following precautions to honor each life given to us by God and show charity for the well-being of our neighbors:
Stay home if you are ill, elderly, anxious or have underlying health conditions. Bishop Parkes has dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese of St. Petersburg from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice.
Fr. Bill Fickel, sss
Ways to create a church at home include:
- Watch Church on Sundays as a family
- Pray daily as a family
- Read the Daily Mass readings together and discuss
- Create a domestic shrine as a center of prayer
- Stay connected to your parish via social media and other communication channels
- Gather together for meals
Now, more than ever, our church needs us to keep the faith, our children included.
