There is no greater gift to give your child than to be baptized! It is at your child’s baptism they will become a child of God and will become part of the Body of Christ.
The Holy Eucharist is, in the words of Vatican II, “the fount and apex of the whole Christian life.” Based on the words of Our Lord in John 6, Catholics believe the Eucharist to be the very Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. For this reason, the Eucharist is the most important and precious part of our life.
We celebrate God’s forgiveness by confessing our sins in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Children in second grade and older are invited to celebrate this sacrament often. If your child needs to receive their First Reconciliation, please go to our Faith Formation page to sign up. If you are an adult and would like to make your first confession, please visit our RCIA page.
The Sacrament of Confirmation completes and perfects the grace of our baptism. Far from being about completing our faith formation, Confirmation calls all Catholics to a deeper and greater study of their faith so they can put its grace into action in our world.
Those who will be undergoing surgery, are seriously ill, struggling with addiction, or impaired by old age should be anointed. If this does not apply to you but you still desire the healing touch of Jesus, you may seek healing in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and receive the Eucharist more often.
The vocation of marriage stands as one of the most important aspects of human existence. Every culture throughout history has recognized marriage as the cornerstone to its well-being. Christian couples not only receive the great social blessings of marriage, but also are granted a special grace from God who elevates their covenant to the level of a sacrament.
For 2000 years, men have answered God’s call to serve as deacons, presbyters, and bishops. These are the three orders of service that God has given to the world to continue the saving work of Jesus Christ in every corner of the world—from the battlefield to the state penitentiary to the local parish to the hospital room.
