1838 ——— 1982

On this site in 1833, Father John Timon, a Vincention Priest, celebrated mass in a warehouse of Don Louis Lorimier.

The first St. Vincent's Church, constructed in 1838, was destroyed by a tornado in 1850. Re-built a year later, the foundation of the present English Gothic church is stone from the original building.

Declared a Chapel of Ease in 1977, Old St. Vincent's Church was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and has remained a place of worship since Father Timon came to this spot in 1833.
