Learning and growing in one’s faith is a lifelong process of personal conversion to Jesus Christ and growing in intimacy with Him. As Catholic Christians, we have a rich heritage of doctrine, sacred art, architecture, sacred music and the saints to assist us in this venture.

Here at Saint Vincent de Paul Church, we emphasize the priority of formation of adults, since adults have the greatest responsibility and capacity to live the Christian message. Parents especially have a sacred responsibility to hand on the Faith to their children. All adults, at whatever stage in life, are called to grow in their knowledge and love of the Lord Jesus each day. We invite you to get involved in one or more of our many opportunities to grow in your relationship with Christ and His holy Church!

Beginning in February 2023, St Vincent de Paul will offer a parish-wide evangelization event featuring dinner, video presentation, and concluding with small group discussions. The Rescue Project features Fr John Riccardo giving weekly video presentations. This event will occur in the school cafeteria weekly for eight weeks following the 4:30pm Saturday Mass.

Learn the Essentials of a Fruitful Prayer Life:

Do you find it easy to pray? Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life and know how to respond? For most of us the answer is no, and we struggle to find even a few minutes every day to pray. The good news is that you can overcome these difficulties. Fr Toups will teach you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life through Oremus. Over eight weeks you will discover how to place yourself in the presence of God. Following Church Tradition and the wisdom of the saints, you will learn to talk to God and hear his voice in Scripture, in your heart, and in ordinary moments, and you will learn how to make prayer an integral part of your daily life. You will become more aware of his close presence, will learn to overcome distractions and dryness, and will recognize desolation and consolation as normal prayer experiences. As you grow closer to God, you will also grow in your relationship with those around you.

Please join us beginning Sunday, January 15th at 6pm or Monday, January 16th at 1pm. Both sessions meet in the Parish Office building which is located at 303 E High St.

“Inspired by the Gospel, the Fathers of the Church from the earliest centuries stressed that just as St. Joseph took loving care of Mary and gladly dedicated himself to Jesus Christ’s upbringing, he likewise watches over and protects Christ’s Mystical Body, that is, the Church.” POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II How to Celebrate the Year … Continue reading How to Celebrate Year of St. Joseph
