Interested in Becoming a Catholic?
Adults wishing to join the Catholic Church and our Parish Family are invited to call Sr. Barbara for information on our RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).
Registered parishioners who have been members of our faith community are asked to notify the parish office at least six months prior to the planned wedding date to schedule an appointment to meet with Fr. Jim. A pre-cana class is required for all couples.
Baptisms are by appointment and are usually held during Mass unless other arrangements are made. First time parents are required to attend an informal baptismal class prior to the baptism. Please contact the parish office to schedule a date. Godparents need a letter of recommendation from their parish to serve as sponsors outside the parish.
Letters of Recommendation
Recommendations to act as a sponsor for the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation can be issued only to registered members who have been confirmed, attend Mass and receive Communion regularly. Please call the parish office during business hours to request your letter.
Home/Hospital Visits/Sacrament of the Sick
If someone is homebound, in the hospital or nursing home, please contact the parish office or Sr. Barbara if you wish the Blessed Sacrament be brought to them. If someone is seriously ill and in need of a priest for anointing, please contact Fr. Jim.
