Sacraments

God Parents must also attend Baptismal prep and have a letter of recommendation from their pastor. You may choose up to 2 God Parents, but they can not be the same sex. God Parents need to be Catholic.
  • Confession - Sunday 9 - 9:30 am, Tuesday 6 - 6:20 pm. You may also make an appointment.
  • First Confession - First Confession is studied and celebrated the first semester of 2nd grade. Please contact the pastor at the beginning of the school year to let him know you are preparing for the sacrament. Please read and follow the full instructions.

Please contact the pastor if you have a child in 7th grade or higher to make plans for this sacrament. Please read and follow the full instructions.
  • Weddings - Please call the pastor as soon as you are engaged as there is a 9 month prep required by the Diocese. Weddings are generally celebrated on Saturday at 10:00 or 12:00. PLEASE DO NOT RENT A HALL UNTIL YOU HAVE SET THE DATE WITH THE PRIEST.
  • Anointing of the Sick (Last Rites) - If you are sick, injured, going in for surgery, or in the advanced years of life, you are eligible for the Anointing of the Sick.

If you know you are going to have surgery, see the preist on the Sunday before the surgery.
