Our Mission

St. Vincent de Paul Parish is an urban Roman Catholic community whose people are diverse, multi-generational and family-oriented. As the oldest parish in the Akron area, our tradition is rich and long in serving the spiritual, educational, physical and social needs of all those who are a part of our community. Living our values, we reach out to those who are our neighbors.

  • As celebrating people we offer worship to God through the sacraments and our witness to the Gospel
  • As a teaching people we support our parish school, school of religion and other educational programs to help us know and understand our Catholic faith and its values.
  • As a caring people we serve God in serving each other through our social programs.
  • As an evangelizing people we reach out to the unchurched and welcome all who enter our doors.

We work to identify and respond to the needs of our parish family as well as those of the surrounding community.
