Andy Warhol frequented the church of St. Ferrer for Sunday mass and several days in the week.
St. Vincent Ferrer has an 86-rank pipe organ built in two phases by the Schantz Organ Company of Orrville, Ohio; the 18-rank chancel organ (Opus 2145) was installed in 1998 and the 68-rank gallery organ (Opus 2224) in 2002.
The Schola Cantorum, the Parish’s professional choir, sings for every Solemn Mass. Schola Cantorum is the official term used by the Catholic Church to denote a liturgical choir and literally means ‘school of singing’.
