128th Annual St. Anne’s Triduum

ST. VINCENT de PAUL CHURCH

342 Vine Street (Corner of Hawley Ave. & Vine St.)

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK 13210

SUNDAY, JULY 24TH – 7:00 P.M. Mass & devotional prayers Fr. Michael Galuppi

Monday, July 25th - 7:00 p.m. mass & devotional prayers Bishop emeritus Robert Cunningham

Tuesday, July 26th - 7:00 p.m. mass, candlelight procession & rosary Bishop Douglas j. Lucia

The first pastor of St. Vincent de Paul Church was Rev. William F. Dougherty.  He was Pastor from 1894 to 1944 - fifty years.  Reading the history of the Church, it began in 1889 in the Oak Street Area near Hawley Avenue in the parlor of Miss Lillie Burns who gathered children into her parlor every Sunday afternoon to teach them about the faith.  From that beginning a Mission Sunday school was formed.  Average attendance was 30 to 40 children.  Also, Priests from St. John Cathedral parish helped.

 

The following year a one and a half story wooden cottage at the corner of Vann Street and Greenway was purchased for $1000.  The building was enlarged to accommodate 225 people.  Property was purchased in the surrounding area (where the Church and School are now) and plans for a church developed and Father Dougherty was appointed Pastor.

 

On the Feast Day of St. Vincent de Paul designated on July 19, 1896 (today the feast day is celebrated on September 27) in the basement of the church, the first Mass was celebrated by Father Dougherty.  This was a High Mass and marked the opening of 40 Hours devotion.  The basement Church was used for Divine Services until the completed church was dedicated by Bishop Ludden on November 7, 1897. 

 

Father Dougherty had a rectory, school and convent built.  He obtained the services of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet to assume charge at the new school when it was opened in 1916.

 

One of the spiritual events in each recurring year was the Annual Devotion to St. Anne on July 26.  Father Dougherty conducted pilgrimages to St. Anne’s Shrine in Canada for many years.  Legend has it that Father Dougherty requested an intention from St. Anne and she answered his prayers.  He thanked her by promoting devotion to her which St. Vincent de Paul parish still has today!!! The first novena was for nine days. Father Alfred Nortz, Father Wilbur Votraw, Father John Rose and now Father Severine Yagaza has continued this tradition.
