We continue to hold the Bird family in our thoughts and prayer. May the Lord illuminate the darkness they are experiencing by the light of His Presence.
Welcome to the website for St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Parish, Stirling, located in the Long Hill Township district of Morris County, New Jersey. Please look over the information offered here.
All are welcome here. The Gospel reminds us that the Lord came to seek sinners and to save them. If you are looking for the perfect church community we are not it. If you recognize that all fall short of grace and are willing to be compassionate, patient, forgiving, to love as Christ commands then we will try to do the same with and for you. Whatever your present status in the Catholic Church, whatever your current situation, whatever your past or present religious affiliation, whatever your personal history, age, background, race or color, whatever your self-esteem, you are invited, welcomed, accepted, loved, respected and challenged at St. Vincent de Paul parish to live as an authentic witness to Jesus Christ.
We have a faith based school, active youth programs, adult formation sessions, along with wonderful opportunities to serve the poor in our midst and further afield. We strive to live the life poured out on us in Baptism and are focused on the Presence of Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the precious gift of the Eucharist. Connected to Christ in this way we seek Him who has called us to be a holy people, a priestly people, a people set apart for the greater glory of God. All are welcome.
