Fr.
Vincent,
(baptized: Benedetto), was born to Benedetto and Santa (nee Livolsi)
Liuzzo on February 10, 1922 in Bronx, New York. On March 20, 2013, he passed on
to eternal life at St. Mary’s Hospital, Passaic NJ.

Fr. Vincent entered the Capuchin Order and was invested with the habit of St.
Francis on July 19th, 1942. On July 25, 1943, he professed vows at St. Lawrence
Monastery, Beacon, New York.
He studied theology at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery, Staunton VA, and was
ordained a priest on December 4, 1949 by Bishop Peter Ireton at the Church of
St. Mary, Richmond, VA,

Fr. Vincent served faithfully as a priest for over 63 years as both pastor and
vicar in numerous parishes throughout his province, as a professor and director
of seminaries in Beacon NY, Geneva NY and Staunton, VA, and later as hospital
chaplain for many years at St. Mary’s Hospital, Passaic NJ,

Fr. Vincent served on his provincial council for several terms, and during the
early 1970’s founded both the first Mission Office and the first Development
Office for his Capuchin province.

In addition to his many ministries, Fr. Vincent was well known for working
skillfully with his hands. He was a talented mechanic and craftsman, and was
responsible for many renovation and improvement projects at sites around the
province – especially at Immaculate Conception Church, Bronx NY during his term
as pastor there in the mid 1970’s,

Fr. Vincent was a fine example of a hard-working and fraternal Capuchin
Franciscan — an inspiration to his brother friars and the people he served.

He is survived by his brother John and sister-in-law Josephine, and several
nieces and nephews.

Between 1942-1943 and again from 1944-1949, Sister Apollonia ministered in the
