Pastor : Fr. Francis Zambon
Welcome, and thank you for visiting our new website for Our Parish Community of Holy Name of Mary, St. Charles Borromeo & St. Vincent de Paul Churches. We hope that our website provides helpful information regarding weekend & weekday masses, our bulletin, Sacramental information, upcoming Parish events as well as other additional information which maybe useful to our website visitors.
We, the Parish Family of Holy Name of Mary, St. Charles Borromeo & St. Vincent de Paul Churches, believe that our Mission as faithful Roman Catholics is to present the Image or Our Lord to all that he brings to us in this life.
In doing so, we are answering the call, placed before us through the Sacrament of Baptism, to be Missionary Disciples of Christ in this community and as a result assist others in developing a personal relationship with Our Loving and Merciful God.
