Sacraments

The Sacrament of Penance (Confession)

Confessions available before Mass and by appointment.

The Sacrament of Baptism

Please see the pastor. Reminder: Novus Ordo and non-practicing Catholics cannot serve as godparents, since they lack the intention of seeing to the traditional Catholic upbringing of children. Please speak to the pastor regarding other requirements of the Church for godparents. Baptisms should take place within a month after birth. A grave reason is needed to delay it any longer.

The Sacrament of Matrimony

Please contact the pastor. The best man and maid of honor of the marriage should be Catholics, since they are the official witnesses to the Sacrament of Matrimony.

Sacraments for the Sick

Please arrange for a priest to bring the sacraments to the sick (Holy Communion, confession, Extreme Unction) with the pastor. If anyone is in danger of death, please call immediately!

The Sacrament of Confirmation

Administered yearly. The Catholic faithful are reminded of their obligation to receive this sacrament if they are not yet confirmed.

Mass Intentions

Stipends are not payment for spiritual benefits received, but are an offering of support for the priest who performs a sacramental rite or ceremony.  The customary stipend when having Mass said for your intentions is $25.00. Masses are said no more than a year from when they are received, though normally much sooner.
