Faith Formation

Welcome to St. Vincent's Faith Formation! Saint Vincent de Paul Church offers many opportunities to enrich and guide you on your spiritual journey. Our Religious Education Program offers the following programs:

Family Faith Formation (K-6)
Edge (7-8)
Life Teen (9-10)
Adult Faith Formation opportunities

The spiritual journey, enriched through our diverse religious education opportunities, is what unites Saint Vincent de Paul parishioners. The parish strives to guide children and their families through each phase of their spiritual journeys. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff serves as mentors and teachers, providing meaningful faith formation for all age groups. These include spiritual retreats, conferences, social events, and activities that inspire our youth to draw closer to God.

Outreach is an integral part of our Family Faith Formation program. In addition to our scheduled Faith Formation classes, we serve our community in a variety of ways. We participate in several diocesan and community activities, and also help serve food to the poor and needy at St. Luke's Mission. Often they help sort clothes, buy Christmas gifts and give uplifting material to the less fortunate. Our St. Vincent de Paul ministry helps the needy in our own community by offering turkeys and hams during Thanksgiving and Easter, along with various food drives throughout the year. If you're interested in serving our community in any way, please complete the volunteer form here. If you are unsure of how to get involved in the community, don't worry! Someone will be in touch with you about specific service events that are in need of volunteers.

Serving our parish community is another way that our Religious Education program actively serves the Church. Families are encouraged to volunteer at our many church functions and masses in roles such as Lectoring, Eucharistic Ministering, Music Ministering, Ushering, Gift Bearing, setting and cleaning up at various parish events,  and teaching and babysitting in our Religious Education program. This provides our youth and their families with many opportunities to enrich and inspire a closer relationship with the Lord.
