Sacraments

Anointing of the Sick:

Offered during Advent and Lent, or by personal request. Call the Parish Office to schedule if a personal request.

 

Baptism:

Offered the 2nd Sunday of each month following the 11:00 am Mass and also celebrated within any of the Masses on the 4th Sunday of the month. There are no baptisms during the 40 days of Lent. A prerequisite Baptism Preparation Class (known as Jordan Conference) is necessary for first-time parents, or those who have not done so before, to attend prior to having their child baptized. Jordan Conference is a single 90 minute instruction session and is free of charge.  These are held on the 3rd Tuesday at 7:00 pm in January, April, July and October Parish registration and active participation should be considered prior to making the commitment of baptism for your child. We encourage new parents to plan on attending the Jordan Conference class before your child is born, however you are free to schedule and attend during the pregnancy or after the birth of your child.

Please contact the Parish Office to schedule your Baptism and/or Jordan Conference class.
