Sacraments

Baptisms
Baptisms are regularly held on the third Sunday of each month at 1:00 p.m. and at Mass in January, the Sunday after Easter, July, and October.

Parents are required to attend a pre-baptism class prior to their child being baptized.  Classes are held every month at 1:00 p.m. in the parish office.  You must call the parish office to register for class and baptism.

Sacrament of Reconciliation
Saturdays at 3:00 p.m. or any time by appointment. 
Parish Penance Services are celebrated on the deanery level during the Advent and Lenten seasons.

First Communion, First Penance, and Confirmation
These sacraments are celebrated by the parish with families of our children during the year and with our new adult parishioners at the Easter Vigil as part of the Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults.  Parents and children are expected to be part of the parish religous formation programs during the years leading to these sacramental celebrations.

Marriage
According to Diocesan guidelines, couple are requested to contact the Parish Office to make arrangements for their marriage at least six months before the wedding date.  This allows for adequate preparation and personal contact between the presider and the couple preparing for marriage.  The couple usually meets several times with the presider and participates in an Engaged Couple Session.

Annointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of Anointing is celebrated upon request.  Anointing is for someone who is seriouly ill, chronically ill, or facing surgery.  A person may be anointed more than once, should conditions change.

Funerals
The time for funerals is arranged through the funeral director and the Parish Office.  Wake services are conducted by our deacons or lay ministers and scheduled for the preceding evening.
