Adult Faith Formation

Sacramental Preperation

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

This program is for those seeking baptism, Christians of other denominations wishing to join the Catholic Church and Catholics who have had little or no faith formation and wish to complete their sacraments. For more information about joining or coming back to the church please contact John Simpson at 253.839.2320 x209 or  jsimpson@stvincentparish.org.

Infant Baptism Newborn to 6 years

Baptisms are regularly scheduled five times per year. Preparation for parents includes a set of three classes and a rehearsal. For more information about this sacrament please contact John Simpson at 253.839.2320 x209 or  jsimpson@stvincentparish.org.

Adult Confirmation

It’s never too late if you have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation.  One should be confirmed before entering Marriage and one needs to be confirmed to serve as a godparent.   Participation in Adult Formation programs serves as preparation for the sacrament. For more information about this sacrament please contact John Simpson at 253.839.2320 x209 or  jsimpson@stvincentparish.org.

Marriage Preparation

Couples are asked to contact the parish at least six months prior to the anticipated marriage date. Initial preparation begins with a meeting with the Adult Faith Formation Minister, then the Pastor. For more information about this sacrament please contact John Simpson at 253.839.2320 x209 or  jsimpson@stvincentparish.org.

Blessing of Marriages (Convalidation)

Not merely a renewal of vows for those who seek to have their marriage blessed by the church. The process is similar to those preparing for the Sacrament of Matrmony. For more information about this sacrament please contact John Simpson at 253.839.2320 x209 or  jsimpson@stvincentparish.org.
