St. Vincent's Church was started in 1868 at the corner of Oregon Street and South Park Avenue. The current church was built in 1914. 

        The parish serves the southeast  side of Oshkosh. Members were primarily of German ancestry and the early immigrants from Bohemia were members of St. Vincent's before Sacred Heart Church was built in 1906. Because the parish was dominated by the Germans, the Irish of the south side petitioned the bishop, in 1893, for their own church and they built St. John The Evangelist church, on South Park Avenue, in 1896.


               Mary Pable, church historian has researched the archives and has more information. When I am able to contact her I will add to this  page.
