ST. VINCENT'S YOUTH AND FAMILY
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.
If you would like more information than is provided here, you may contact Sr. M. Joana Baidoo at email@example.com
CHILDREN'S LITURGY OF THE WORD
The Children's Liturgy of the Word is conducted during the 9:30 a.m. Mass. It is open to children between the ages of 4 and 7. The Gospel and/or other readings from the Mass are presented in words and activities that are understandable to young children. The Liturgy of the Word has the goal of familiarizing young children with the Bible and Catholic faith tradition. Contact: Sr. M. Joana Baidoo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
