Bishop Paprocki on the Importance of Attending Sunday Mass

Sacramental Preparation

The reception of the Sacraments assumes that parents and/or individuals live out their Faith according to the Precepts of the Church:  be registered members of our parish; faithful, weekly participation at Mass on the weekends and Holy Days of Obligation; reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist; stewardship of one's time, talent and treasure.  

Baptism:  Parents who have not attended one of our Baptismal Preparation Sessions are required to do so by Canon Law.  It is only necessary to attend once.  Registration for the Prep and scheduling of the Baptism may be done through our parish secretary.  Baptism may be administered by either our Pastor or Deacon.  

First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation:  Sacramental Preparation is accomplished either through PSR classes (Parish School of Religion) for public school students or Parochial School classes.  Pleaes watch the weekly parish bulletin and website for details each year.  Prospective Confirmation Candidates (Confirmandi) and parents are notified by letter each June.  confirmation is now offered to eighth grade students.
