ST. VINCENT'S YOUTH AND FAMILY

FAITH FORMATION

 

Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it. Proverbs 22:6

 

The most precious gift that God has given us is our children! While parents are a child's primary teacher, our goal is to assist you with your child's faith formation. Our service to our children in handing on our faith is the link that builds the Body of Christ, both now and in the future. There is no greater gift that can be given than to teach a child about God!

 

Faith Formation classes for grades Pre-K through 9th grade are held on Sundays beginning in September and ending in May following the 10:30 mass. Please see the attached schedule to view our spring semester. Children need to be enrolled in and regularly attend religious education classes. Families can register anytime.

A printable version of our registration form is available here. We require one registration form per child.

Totus Tuus

Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program unlike any other! Totus Tuus is dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, discipleship, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. This week-long program is held at multiple parishes across the Diocese throughout the summer. Young adult missionaries guide the children and teens to an encounter with Christ by authentically living out the Catholic faith. 

 

DAY PROGRAM (1ST-6TH GRADE)

Totus Tuus grade school program is designed for children going into first through sixth grade in the 2024-2025 school year. The Day Program runs Monday through Friday. The students are encouraged to be clear and consistent in their faith. They are shown how to view their Lord as a good Father. This personal relationship gives them the confidence to be Christ’s witnesses in the world around them. Finally, Totus Tuus endeavors to show the youth that a humble and courageous desire to know God must be based upon a steadfast and disciplined life of prayer combined with the reception of the sacraments.

 

EVENING PROGRAM (7TH-12TH GRADE)

Some parishes offer a Totus Tuus evening program.  This consists of evening retreats for middle school and high school youth. These “evening retreats” meet Sunday through Thursday and focus on small group discussions, prayer, and fun activities that foster relationships with both peers and Christ.
