Faith Formation - Upcoming Dates & Events


This year,  we celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 18, 2022. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Our theme is: “This is my body given for you”. We welcome our St. Vincent de Paul School teachers and staff and our P.S.R. catechists to the 8:30 a.m. Mass where they will receive a special blessing.  



Please keep our St. Vincent de Paul 8th graders in your prayers as they prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist on Sunday, October 9 at 2:00 p.m. These young people began their preparation last year in 7th grade and are now in the final days of preparation. Keep them, their families, and their sponsors in your prayers during this important time on their journey of faith and in the life of their families.  


If you would like to have your child baptized, we invite you to join our Baptism formation session. These sessions are held monthly and our next one is scheduled for Monday evening, September 12th, 2022, beginning at 6:30 p.m. and concluding at 8:00 p.m. Godparents are strongly encouraged to attend. Please contact Rita Kingsbury to register for the September 12Baptism formation session at 330-535-3135 Ext. 203 or email at [email protected]
