Sacramental Prep

Our Faith Formation community has responsibility to prepare our parishoners to receive the sacraments. This preparation takes place in separate parent/child meetings and activities. Catholic School and Religious Education students come together in their home parish to prepare and celebrate the sacraments.  These programs are managed by the Faith Formation department.  Contact -

Baptism is the Sacrament that brings us to a new life in the Risen Christ. Parents are asked to attend a baptism preparation class prior to the birth of their baby.  All baptisms will be scheduled on the 3rd Sunday following the 11:30 AM Mass.


For information on Baptism preparations, please contact the rectory office 873-6716 or via email.


The Sacrament of Marriage creates a covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life.

Preparation sessions are recommended before entering this life changing union.
