About St. Vincent de Paul
St. Vincent de Paul, located in Pettis County Missouri, became one parish on September 22, 2019. St. Vincent was the name of the original Catholic Church in Sedalia, Missouri. Prior to September 22, 2019, Pettis County was home to three Catholic parishes: St. Patrick, St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart. With much hard work, faith and hope, under the leadership of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, Fr. Mark Miller, C.PP.S. began the enormous task of bringing us together as one parish. Fr. Mark along with the leadership of all three parishes worked with the Bishop McKnight and Diocese of Jefferson City, to unite us as one parish. While it was a difficult decision and done with much prayer it was decided to move forward.
At the end June of 2019, the pastoral care of the Catholic Community of Pettis County was turned over to the Diocese of Jefferson City and we welcomed Fr. Joe Corel and Fr. David Veit (Pastors in Solidum) in July of 2019.
