St. Vincent de Paul offers many learning opportunties thorughout the year for adults to further understand and grow in their faith. Find out more about our upcoming programs in our bulletin.
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn about the Catholic Faith. Sessions focus on the teachings of the Bible/Jesus, the experience of Church, how the Catholic Faith can enrich one’s life and prepares for reception of Sacraments, always allowing time for your questions. If you know someone who might be interested in the RCIA, invite them and share this information. If you are interested in the RCIA, have questions about the RCIA or if Thursdays don’t work for your schedule, contact Chuck Pratt to discuss options at 763-762-7407 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Fall of 2015, we viewed four parts of the twenty part Symbolon program with very positive
reviews. More topics will be offered during Grades 1-6 Faith Formation, 6-7:15 PM on Tuesday, 5-6:15 PM and 6:45-8 PM on Wednesday,in the music room in the Education Center. Open to all interested parishioners. No fee and no registration required. The next session is on April 18 & 19--"The Paschal Mystery" Perhaps we see the cross of Jesus so often that we forget what this symbol of Jesus' sacrificial love really means. Maybe we have an unclear understanding of the importance of the resurrection.
The JustFaith modules nicknamed JustMatters have provided our parishioners with a clear and planned way to discuss, learn, and build community as we study issues of our times. One of the goals is to invite us to consider engaging in a productive action in relation to the focus issue of any particular module. The JustMatters modules range from six to eight weeks of 2 ½-hour sessions. All sessions include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationshipbuilding. Some sessions may include DVDs and/or guest speakers. For more information, or to register, please contact Okey Anyanwu.
