Sacrament of Baptism Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation into the Catholic faith. Baptisms for infants and young children are performed during Mass or in private ceremonies. Adult baptisms are guided by our RCIA team and normally take place during the Easter Vigil. Contact Fr. Mike to discuss baptismal arrangements.
Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist Children typically receive the Eucharist in second grade. Preparatory classes are taught by our religious education instructors, and periodic meetings between parents, students, and instructors are held throughout the year. Contact Gail Fischer for more information.
Sacrament of Confirmation Confirmation occurs every two years in our parish. Classroom instruction is required along with periodic meetings between parents, students, and their sponsors. Confirmands typically begin in regular Sunday school classes before entering special courses during the year of the Confirmation. They are also required to attend at least one retreat and perform various service requirements to be considered for Confirmation. Contact Gail Fischer for more information.
Sacrament of Marriage Marriage arrangements must be made at least six months in advance with Fr. Mike. Couples must also consult with the Director of Music regarding music arrangements. All couples are expected to complete a marriage preparation course. Contact the Parish Office with general questions or to obtain a wedding booklet.
