Welcome Fr. Vilaire Philius!
Bishop Noonan has assigned Fr. Vilaire Philius as parochial vicar to both St Joseph's and Our Lady of Grace.
Fr Vilaire will coequally split his time between the two communities and will be responsible for the Haitian community as well.
Father Vilaire attended Seminary at the Salesian House in Port-au-Prince, Haiti for his pre-novitiate.  He then came to the United States in 1997 and studied with the Salesians in New Jersey.  In 2004, he left the Salesians to start theology at St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary with the Diocese of Orlando.  Fr. Vilaire was ordained on May 30, 2009 in St. James Cathedral and was was assigned as parochial Vicar to St Margaret Mary in Winter Park.  In May 2012 he was assigned to serve the people of St. James Cathedral, and in 2016 the community of Most Precious Blood.
Fr. Vilaire loves to work with the youth and his greatest joy is to live his faith happily around the people of God and to serve them.  We are blessed to have Fr. Vilaire join us as we all move towards the Lord and continue to build God's kingdom in Palm Bay.  Please be sure to introduce yourself to our new parochial vicar and extend him a warm welcome!
