Fr Vincent is Chaplain to St Vincent de Paul Primary School and is responsible for the Cathedral First Holy Communion Programme, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and for the Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
Fr Vincent hails from Indonesia and is a member of the Society of the Divine Word. He trained for the priesthood at St Paul Seminary, Ledalero in Indonesia and in Bonn, Germany. His ongoing formation took him to Friedberg and Hamburg, where he worked as an Assistant Priest. His positive experiences in Germany encouraged him to seek new areas of work and he moved to Ireland for two years and in 2014, to England where he was appointed to Marychurch parish in Hatfield and then to the busy city centre parish of St Mary of the Quay in Bristol. As a member of the College of Chaplains he says: ‘I open my heart to be surprised by new experiences.’
