Located since the early 30’s in River Forest, Illinois, St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church serves an area comprising parts of the Chicago suburbs of River Forest and Elmwood Park. The parish mission statement defines this Catholic community. “As committed Catholics we gather together in St. Vincent Ferrer Parish to build a Christian community on the Dominican tradition of dignity and truth. Through the sacramental life of our Church, the celebration of the Eucharist, personal prayer, study, and working together to spread God’s message of love, peace and justice we struggle to achieve this goal.”
