FAITH FORMATION

SERVICE OF THE WORD
(Temporary suspended)

The Service of the Word is currently offered at Sunday Masses; it aims to present the liturgy in a form understandable by and engaging to children. When possible, separate sessions are held for children who have received First Holy Communion and those who have not. Service of the Word is taught by teenagers and other volunteers in coordination with the pastoral team.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
(Temporary suspended)

St. Vincent's offers First Holy Communion classes for children 7 years and up to prepare children for the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.

First Holy Communion (FHC), is the colloquial name for a person’s first reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Holy Eucharist is the sacrament in which Jesus Christ gives his Body and Blood—himself—for us, so that we too might give ourselves to him in love and be united with him in Holy Communion. In this way we are joined with the one Body of Christ, the Church.

In this course, your children learn:

- What is the Eucharist and why is it called Holy Communion

- What is Transubstantiation and what happens at Mass

- How to Prepare for a worthy reception of Holy Communion

- What is the role of the ordained priesthood in God's plan

- What the saints teach us on the Holy Eucharist

Classes are held every Sunday after 10am Mass.
At the end of the course, children will receive their First Communion.

CONFIRMATION

"BE SEALED WITH THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT"

St. Vincent's ’s offers Confirmation classes for young people age 13 and up.

Confirmation is the Sacrament that completes Baptism; in it the gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon us. Anyone who freely decides to live a life as God’s child and asks for God’s Spirit under the signs of the imposition of hands and anointing with chrism receives the strength to witness to God’s love and might in word and deed. He is now a full-fledged, responsible member of the Catholic Church.

In Confirmation the soul of a baptized Christian is imprinted with a permanent seal q0that can be received only once and marks this individuall forever as a Christian. The gift of the Holy Spirit is the strength from above in which this individuall puts the grace of his Baptism into practice through his life and acts as a “witness” for Christ.

Preparation classes for youth are held every Sunday after 10am Mass.

The celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation for those who completed their formation class this year will be held on 26 July 2020 (Sunday) during 12 noon Mass.

Parents are invited to fill the form in our sacristy for the next Confirmation class in September.
Your child must be 12 years old or above and should present their certificate of Baptism.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)

RCIA is a ministry to adults who are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Many participants – called Catechumens or Candidates – decide to receive the sacraments of our faith and live their lives as Catholic Christians. RCIA addresses the conversion needs of:

Adults who have never been baptized

Adults who have been baptized in another Christian tradition

Adults who were baptized Catholic but have had no instruction in the faith or have not received the Sacraments of First Communion and/or Confirmation

The mission of the Rite of Christian Initiation at St. Andrew's Parish-St. Vincent's Church is to encourage and support the faith formation of those seeking to live their lives as Catholic Christians.

RCIA classes will resume in September 2020
