St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Community

WOW! The new facilities are just amazing. And, a partnership with Mercy Neighborhood Ministries for Pre-K/Headstart!!! ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Wow! So wonderful to see. Having been involved back when Face to Face was first founded and with the capital campaign many years ago, I'm so impressed by the progress that has been made and how this building will anchor the community. Can't wait to come and see the preschool!

This is wonderful!

Truly wonderful!!
