Sacraments

Baptism: Parents who are expecting should contact the office as soon as they can so that the preparation for Baptism can begin. Baptismal classes happen throughout the year; however, there is preliminary information that is required before this preparation so it is beneficial to begin early.

Confirmation: Children and Adults who have not been Confirmed and who desire this can contact the staff to see what the requirements of this are.

Eucharist: Classes are provided for Confirmation and First Eucharist for children in grades 2 through5. It is a requirement that these children have attended faith formation and that their parents have a willingness to assist in their children's faith development. Watch for the schedule in the early fall.

Reconciliation: Classes are provided for Reconciliation for children in grades 2 through 5. It is a requirement that these children have attended faith formation and that their parents have a willingness to assist in their children's faith development. Watch for the schedule in the early fall.

Anointing of the Sick: The sacrament of healing, Anointing, is available to those who are in need of it at any time. The parish provides this sacrament at healing Masses within the vicariate at various times throughout the year. Those who have just learned that they are in need of surgery or who are suffering from a difficult illness may request the sacrament at any time. It was once known as the “Last Rites" which could only be given at the end of one's life. This is not the understanding of the sacrament of Anointing.

Marriage: Couples who have become engaged should contact the parish as soon as possible. There are many guidelines to have in mind for the preparation of a sacramental, Catholic wedding. It is extremely helpful for couples to know what these guidelines are before they get too far in their plans.

Decree of Nullity: People who have been previously married and are no longer are invited to contact the office regarding how they might proceed in their lives as Catholics. What is commonly called an Annulment may be discussed in their individual situations. The process is one of healing.
