Diocese: BOSTON

ICTE Fall: 2000

VON EUW, Rev. Vincent Paul Died peacefully at Marian Manor Nursing Home on December 24, 2017, one day before his 81st Christmas birthday.

Fr. Vincent took seriously his love for Jesus. On May 26, 1966, he was ordained a Priest for the Archdiocese of Boston. He served in Plymouth and Salem before joining the St. James Society in 1973, where he ministered in Peru for more than a decade. He was a priest for the poor in inner city communities in both South America and Boston, including at St. Peter’s Parish. He served Irish, Vietnamese, and Latino communities, where he was loved.

Fr. Vincent’s spirituality was well known as a mass celebrant on Catholic TV. In 1991, Fr. Vincent became Pastor of St. Ambrose Catholic Church, where he served until his retirement in 2007. Fr. Vincent’s family is grateful for the loving care he received from the staff at Marian Manor during the last ten years.

Fr. Vincent leaves his twin sister, Eleanor DePasquale, brother-in-law Philip DePasquale, sisters-in-law Mary Lou Von Euw, Laura Von Euw, and Margaret Von Euw, many wonderful nieces and nephews, and his priestly brothers. He was the dear brother of the late Fr. Charles K. Von Euw, former professor at St. John’s Seminary, and departed brothers William Robert, Theodore, and David, and sister Mary Colarusso. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 27 from 4-8 pm in St. Ambrose Church, 240 Adams St. Dorchester. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Dec. 28 at 10 am at St. Ambrose Church. Burial will follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, West Roxbury.
