Pastor: Fr. Paul MacNeil
I was appointed as pastor of Our Lady of the Scapular parish in November 2015 and I am delighted to be here. Before that, I was pastor of St. Ann's parish in Fenwick Ontario, a small but loving community about 30 minutes from here. I was born and raised in St. Catharines and ordained to the priesthood in 1999. Currently I am Chair of the Niagara Catholic District School Board and I'm working on my PhD in Religious Studies at McMaster University. As your pastor, my first priority is just to listen, to get to know you and understand the best way for me to serve you and to bring you closer to each other and to God through Christ.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The mission of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) is to live the Gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice and joy. It was founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam to help the poor in Paris, France. The first Canadian Conference was established in Quebec in 1846. Now there are conferences across Canada and internationally in 130 countries. Our conference of Vincentians is small but very dedicated and hard working, doing tremendous work supporting those who come to us in need. We meet in the parish hall on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 pm and welcome new members. For more information, please contact us.
