Sacraments

The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.

Baptism

Baptisms are performed on the second and fourth Sundays following the 11:30 AM mass.

Parents must be active registered parishioners and are required to attend one Baptism class. Classes are offered for new as well as experienced parents. To register please call the parish office. Baptismal registration forms are made available at the classes.
