Baptism

“The fruit of Baptism, or baptismal grace, is a rich reality that includes forgiveness of original sin and all personal sins, birth into new life by which man becomes an adoptive son of the Father, a member of Christ and a temple of the Holy Spirit.  By this very fact the person baptized is incorporated into Church, the Body of Christ, and made a sharer in the priesthood of Christ.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1279

If you would like your child baptized or are looking into being baptized into the Catholic faith, please contact the parish office.

Eucharist/Communion

“The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father: by this sacrifice he pours out the grace of salvation on his Body which is the Church.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1407

Please join us for Mass – Tuesday 6:30 p.m., Saturday 5:00 p.m., or Sunday 10:00 a.m.

Penance/Reconciliation

“To return to communion with God after having lost it through sin is a process born of the grace of God who is rich in mercy and solicitous for the salvation of men.  One must ask for this precious gift for ourselves and for others.” ~Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1489

Reconciliation Tuesday 6:00 p.m., and Saturday 4:00 p.m.  Or to schedule an appointment for confession with Fr. Ken, please call the parish office.

Confirmation

“Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1316

Anointing of the Sick

 

“Is any among you sick?  Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sin, he will be forgiven.” ~ Jas 5:14-15

If you or someone you know would like to be anointed please call the parish office.

Matrimony

“The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church.  It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1661

For those looking to get married in the Catholic Church, please contact the parish office at least nine months before the anticipated wedding date.

Holy Orders

“The whole Church is a priestly people.  Through Baptism all the faithful share in the priesthood of Christ.  This participation is called the ‘common priesthood of the faithful.’  Based on this common priesthood and ordered to its service, there exists another participation in the mission of Christ: the ministry conferred by the sacrament of Holy Orders, where the task is to serve in the name and in the person of Christ the Head in the midst of the community.”  ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1591

For those interested in the priesthood or religious life, please contact Fr. Ken at 810-686-9861.
