Freed from sin and reborn to God.
Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.
Baptisms are usually celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of the month after Mass and the 3rd Sunday of the month during Mass. Parents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation Session before having their first child baptized. At the session, the importance of Baptism, the responsibility of parents, and day-of details will be discussed. Please call 783-5535 or contact us below to register for the session.
The Body and Blood of Jesus Christ
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins.”
Recalling these words of Jesus, the Catholic Church professes that, in the celebration of the Eucharist, bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and the instrumentality of the priest.
Please call 783-5535 to request Communion for homebound individuals.
Find forgiveness through pardon.
As part of Confession, the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. In a profound sense, it is also a “confession” – or acknowledgement and praise – of the holiness of God and His mercy towards our sin.
Confessions are available following the regular 8:00 am Saturday morning Mass. In addition, confessions are held additional times during Advent and Lent. Please call 783-5535 Ext 5 to schedule an individual Confession if needed.
Be devoted to each other in love.
“Husbands should love their wives, just as Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her”. The sacrament of Marriage is a true gift.
