Sacraments

Just as the seasons change outdoors, 
so do the seasons change in our own lives, 
each very different from the last.  
There is one constant through all of this change – 
God’s love for His Children.

Faith in God – in life’s every phase – is the foundation for the strong, 
supportive relationships at our church.  We see our church community as a place to worship, 
to learn and to grow together.  It is a place to find encouragement when weathering a storm,
a place to share life’s blessings, a place to find new friends.  
We hope to get to know you better.  Our door is always open…

 

Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament is available for strengthening and support in many kinds of illness.  The family, friends and caretakers of the sick have a special share in this ministry of comfort. Please contact our parish office to schedule as needed.

 

Baptism

Parents requesting baptism are encouraged to call the Parish Office to register. Baptisms are scheduled with the Pastor and parents are required to complete the baptism preparation session for their child’s baptism.

 

First Eucharist & First Reconciliation

Educating our children in the love and worship of God is an awesome responsibility and a great privilege, which the Lord granted to us when he entrusted children into our care.  Sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist involves both second grade youth and parents.  It is available for all children baptized in the Catholic faith.  For more specific information, please refer to the Faith Formation page or call the parish office.

 

Confirmation

As we approach adulthood, this sacrament helps us confirm our faith. In 11th Grade our youth are lead on a Lenten journey with lessons once a week.  In this, they connect with the true roots of our faith and are confirmed in the fall of their senior year.  More information is provided on the Faith Formation page.

 

Marriage

This sacrament bonds two hearts together on our journey with Christ. Preparations should be made at least six months in advance, as a pre-nuptial interview and preparation program is required.  Please contact the parish office for more information.
