Religious Education

St. Vincent de Paul Church Religious Education is for any youth and their family!

We strive to provide a Catholic Education in a personal and welcoming setting here at our parish. We seek to do this through catechesis, service, liturgy, worship, and more.
We know that parents are the primary Catechists for their children and we strive to partner with each family we encounter to walk with them on their children's faith journey.
It is our promise to love them first and teach them second.

St. Vincent de Paul & St. Frances Cabrini Parishes  (Parish School of Religion)
is held on Monday evenings during the school term 6:30-7:45PM in our school building.

PSR is for all students in our parish or surrounding areas in grades 1-Confirmation. We use the series Pflaum Gospel Weeklies to incorporate the Sunday Gospel message into our lessons with age appropriate catechesis, liturgical practices, and other ways to learn and grow in our faith.

For those that have Kindergarten aged students-- you are welcome you to register your young person, they will have a combined class with 1st grade. Its great for Peer Modeling

Preschool- PreK students -- we do not have in person class at this time, but we do have Preschool materials available for all who register or would like one. 

First Communion is available to students in grades 2 and above with at least a year of Catholic education. Students who are older than grade 2 needing First Communion will be prepared on regular PSR nights with special evenings of First Communion preparation with our DRE and/or Deacon. 

Confirmation preparation begins in the 8th grade and above. It is held annually and is done with the inclusion of our sister parish St. Francis Cabrini.
You must have had at least one year of Faith Formation.

Are You an Adult Needing Confirmation? 
Contact Father Retar in the rectory of either St. Frances Cabrini or St. Vincent de Paul Parishes.  You can prepare individually for the Sacrament with Father or a member of the RCIA team and then receive the Sacrament in April!
