Father Vincent Liberto (20 January 1903-3 May 1987), formerly of New Orleans, was a notable Roman Catholic priest and a member of The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). He is notable for having acquired new "property in a higher and better location...for a future church" in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. While back in New Orleans in 1969 as a pastor at St. Mary's Italian church, he also made national news for successfully convincing a man intending on committing suicide by pistol at a bus terminal in front of a crowd of roughly fifty spectators to not kill himself.
