We respectfully request....

Here's a link to an online petition requesting that the sale of St. Vincent's be withdrawn. There will also be parishioners around town in the next several days with paper petitions you can sign. Please only sign once, either the paper petition or the online petition. If you have questions or want to sign the paper version but haven't had the opportunity, email us at and we will arrange to get one to you.

The petition (both paper and online) states the following:


To the Diocese of Rochester and Providence Housing Development Corporation

WE, the undersigned, are residents of the Corning-Painted Post area and its Catholic community. We respectfully request that the sale of St. Vincent’s Catholic Church to Providence House or any other buyer, be withdrawn at this time. We believe there are serious concerns about the process used to determine its sale, and that other viable alternatives were not satisfactorily explored or presented to parishioners. Also, we believe the sale of St. Vincent’s Catholic Church will further divide and diminish All Saints Parish for years to come. For more information visit or the Saving All Saint’s Parish Facebook page.
