Annointing of the Sick

  • The pastor is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to administer the sacrament to the sick and the dying. The visit of the priest is meant to comfort the sick person; no one has ever died of fright because the priest has come to visit and administer the sacrament.
  • Please call us whenever you or a member of your family is seriously ill. Call us early. Call us before surgery takes place. Call us when we are still able to do something. Do not wait to call us after death has occurred; we can do nothing then. Indeed, it is not the practice of the Church to go to the hospital after death has occurred. Do not wait until it is too late.

adult baptism - RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)

  • To learn more about the Catholic Faith or to become Catholic please contact the Parish Office for information.

The sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required disposition. (Catechism of the Catholic Church : 1131)

FUNERALS

  • Please call the parish immediately upon the death of a loved one.
  • We will be ready to meet and support the family by offering the consolation that comes from faith and help the family plan the funeral celebration in accordance with Archdiocesan policy.
  • The pastoral ministry of the Catholic Church and its funeral rites is directed to placing the event of death in the context of our Christian faith. Its’ true meaning gives hope to the faithful.
  • The funeral liturgy is a privileged moment for the family and believing community to offer worship, praise and thanks to God for the gift of the deceased. The sacrament of the Eucharist is the center of our celebration.
