St. Vincent’s Church began celebrating Mass in December of 1969. At the time, it served both the Cantonese and English-speaking communities of Hang Hau parish, which then included Hang Hau and the small villages around Clearwater Bay from Fei Ngo Shan to Tai O Mun. For several decades it was primarily associated with the CICM (Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) priests and brothers and ICM (Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) sisters. In the past St. Vincent has been involved with a primary school, an English-language kindergarten, and a children’s after-school centre.
The area and community that St. Vincent’s serves has changed over time with the development of Tseung Kwan O. In 1989 the area across from Po Lam Road became St. Andrew’s parish, while Fu Ning Court and Hang Hau New Village came under St. Vincent’s parish. In 2008, St. Vincent’s was incorporated into St. Andrew’s parish. With the growing number of English-speaking parishioners, English became the language of both Sunday Masses in 2011; and by February 2018 three Masses on Sundays was introduced.
The original two church councils (one Cantonese, one English) were merged into a single council to coordinate activities. The St. Vincent’s community is highly international with members from all over the world.
