MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the parish St. Vincent Ferrer continues the ministry of Jesus who came to bring the good news of salvation fo the world. Since 1855, this parish has been a light set on a hill in Vallejo. Through the life of this Catholic Parish, the sacraments are celebrated, believers profess their faith, faith is put into action; and a diversity of people in culture, language, origin, and age seek unity, which fosters peace. As stewards, we dedicate our money, time, and personal resources to the mission of Christ.

Confirmation

“Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For ‘by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed’.” (CCC 1285)

 

Confirmation is a two year, family oriented process, generally beginning in the 7th grade, which prepares youth for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of 8th grade. For more information about classes or if you are an adult who wants to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, please contact the office at (707) 643-0188.

 

Each year of classes the instruction is in English.
