RECONCILIATION: Saturday afternoon from
5:15 – 5:45 PM or anytime by appointment.

MATRIMONY: By appointment at least six months in advance.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK: We want to celebrate this sacrament whenever anyone is in need due to illness, the infirmity that comes with age or any other time it is desired. Please call the Pastor at the rectory number, extension 11. Communal celebrations of this sacrament are scheduled several times throughout the year at a weekend Mass.

HOLY ORDERS: Some men fulfill a call to holiness by serving as priests or permanent deacons. Men who feel that call should call the pastor.

FAITH FORMATION

RCIA: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process the Church offers to those who have not been Baptized, or Confirmed or admitted to First Communion as children in Religious Education. It is also the path to Full Communion in the Catholic Church for those Baptized in another faith. Please call the Religious Education office or the Pastor.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: For grade and high school students is conducted during the school year for grades 1-11 on Sunday from 10:00 AM until 11:20 AM in the Faith Formation Building. Call the Religious Education office for more information.
