Joy Wuenschel was an active & beloved member of St. Vincent’s for many years. She walked her faith as an activist and member of countless ministries. Joy’s values of inclusion & social justice, in addition to her vibrance and warmth, made her a pillar of our community. She served on the interior committee and was dedicated to rehabilitating the church so that we can continue the community’s valuable work.

The work in the church is well underway! Plaster work is finished & painting is in process. Electrical and lighting updating is beginning. This work is critical to the protection of the building and safety of our community. Beautiful art will complete the rehabilitation of the interior of our historic and beautiful church building.
