Sacraments

Anointing of the Sick
The Catholic Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness. If you or someone you know is ill and would like to receive this sacrament please contact the parish office

Baptism
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God. For information about the Sacrament of Baptism or to inquire about receiving the Sacrament, please contact the parish office

Confirmation
Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Students who complete the Confirmation program will make their Confirmation in Grade 10. For more information about our Confirmation Classes please contact the Parish Office.

Holy Eucharist
Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.
Children usually make their First Communion in second grade after completing First Communion classes. For information about Religious Education for children please see the Religious Education tab or contact the Parish Office.

If interested in receiving Communion at home, please contact us
Our Mass Schedule is available on the homepage of this site.

Holy Orders
In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.

Marriage
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.
Those who wish to be married in the church should contact Father at least six months prior to the intended date of matrimony. Couples will be required to complete pre cana classes that are scheduled periodically throughout the state.
