Sacraments

The Sacraments are privileged moments of God’s grace in our community.

The seven sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony and Holy Orders communicate what our faith professes. They nourish, strengthen and impart grace.

Each week we gather together to celebrate the Body and Blood of Christ, and we renew our sacrament. Set aside some time to reflect on the real presence of the Body and Blood of Jesus in the Eucharist and grow in love and devotion of the Blessed Sacrament.

 

Infant Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated on Sundays at Noon with prior arrangements made through the Rectory Office. Parents are required to attend a parish preparation program. Godparents must be practicing Catholics in good standing able to receive a Certificate of Eligibility from their current parish.

Marriages

Arrangements should be made at least one year in advance. Couples are required to participate in a parish marriage preparation program and to attend a premarital conference sponsored by the Diocese. Weddings can be scheduled @ either 1 or 2 pm on Saturdays.
