Sacraments

The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. Sacraments are "powers that come forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life giving. They are the "masterworks of God" in the new and everlasting covenant. ..

For individuals wishing to become Catholic, opportunity for the reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation is available during the Easter Vigil after participation in the RCIA program. Interested individuals should contact Director of Religious Education Deacon Rick Moser at 587-2567 for more information.

HOLY MATRIMONY

Couples contemplating marriage should contact the Parish Office at 587-3388 as soon as they make a decision to marry and at least one year prior to the intended date of marriage to make an appointment so that proper preparations can be made.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is for Catholics whose health (physical, spiritual, or emotional) is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. This sacrament may be repeated if a person recovers and then becomes ill again; when the illness becomes more serious; or if the person is chronically ill.

If you or anyone you know would like to receive the Sacraments of Anointing, Reconciliation or the Holy Eucharist, please contact the Parish Office at 587-3388 during normal business hours. If a parishioner who has not been anointed is in danger of death, you should not hesitate to call the office at any hour.

CONFIRMATION

The Religious Education program coordinates sacramental preparation within the parish for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation celebrations. Typically, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are celebrated in the second grade, Confirmation in the seventh grade. For questions concerning First Reconciliation, First Eucharist or Confirmation, please contact Director of Religious Education Deacon Rick Moser at 587-2567.

Adults who are Catholic and wish to receive a sacrament that they have not received may attend the RCIA sessions that provide education in the particular area needed and receive the sacrament at the Easter Vigil. Please contact Director of Religious Education Deacon Rick Moser at 587-2567 for more information.
