Sacraments

SacramentsThe whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. (CCC 1113)

While we believe that human life is infused with the sacramental goodness of God, the Catholic Church has defined seven sacraments - instituted by and through the life of Jesus Christ. It is through the experience of the sacramental ritual that we are infused with God’s grace. The Sacraments nourish and strengthen us as they express and build up our faith.

Baptism

Communal celebrations are held several times a year. Baptism and Beyond sessions are for parents of infants.

Baptisms of adults and children (age 7 and older) are celebrated in the spring. Christian Initiation sessions (RCIA) are for adults and youth.

 

Reconciliation

Saturdays, 3:45 pm -4:30 pm. A Parish Reconciliation service  is celebrated twice yearly in preparation for Christmas and Easter.

First Eucharist & First Reconciliation
