Anointing

“...the primary effect of the sacrament is a spiritual healing by which the sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gift of peace and courage to deal with the difficulties that accompany serious illness or the frailty of old age.”
-usccb.org


Please notify the Parish Office as soon as possible when someone becomes seriously ill or is admitted to the hospital.

Baptism

Infant baptisms can be scheduled for Sundays after Mass by contacting the Parish Office. First-time parents need to attend a Pre-Jordan class. Sponsors not from the parish are required to submit a Certificate of Eligibility from their parish two weeks prior to the Baptism. 

The baptism of older children and adults are also scheduled by contacting the Parish Office.

Confirmation

In confirmation, the graces received in baptism are increased and strengthened. It helps prepare you for discipleship.

Youth are prepared for confirmation through our parish religious education program and receive the sacrament in either 7th or 8th grade.

Adults wishing to receive the sacrament should contact the Parish Office.

First Communion

Children are prepared to receive the body of the Lord through our religious education program in 2nd grade. 

Adults wishing to prepare to receive the eucharist for the first time should contact the Parish Office.

Matrimony

Matrimony is a covenant, a permanent union of persons capable of knowing and loving each other and God. 


Contact the Parish Office and schedule to meet with a priest at least six months prior to your preferred wedding date to insure sufficient preparation time. Couples are required to attend Pre-Cana sessions, which the priest will discuss with you.

Confession

Confession (aka reconciliation or the sacrament of penance) offers the forgiveness of sins and the reconciliation of our relationship with God in which the priest acts as the visible and audible representative of Christ.

Confessions are heard every Saturday, 3:30-4:30pm and by appointment by contacting the Parish Office.
