Sacraments

The seven sacraments of the Catholic Church are outward signs instituted by Jesus Christ, through which grace and interior sanctification are communicated from Jesus to an individual human soul.

Baptism

Baptism should take place as soon as possible following birth. Expectant parents should contact the pastor before the birth of the child.

Reconciliation or Confession
Confessions are heard on Saturday from 4:00 pm to 4:45 pm and Wed. from 5:30 - 6:15 and every day during Adoration before Mass (on request).

 Confirmation

Contact the parish office if interested. After a year of preparation the candidate may receive this sacrament.

The Holy Eucharist
The summit of Catholicism, one may receive Jesus in the sacrament if Catholic and in a state of grace (no mortal sins). Orthodox Christians may receive the sacrament as well.

 Anointing of the Sick

Anyone in danger of death from illness or old age should receive this sacrament. Please inform the pastor of any parishioners who are seriously ill.

Matrimony
Contact the pastor at least four months prior to the proposed wedding date to receive marriage preparation. Couples must fulfill all diocesan regulations.

 Holy Orders

If a young man feels called to a priestly vocation dedicated to God, contact the pastor for counsel and guidance.
