Baptism
 
Parents expecting their first child are required to attend a Baptismal Preparation Program held several times a year.  Families new to the parish and expecting a baby, even if not their first child, are likewise to contact the Rectory concerning Baptismal Preparation or a home visitation.  These arrangements should be made well in advance of the due date of the baby's birth.  Adults seeking baptism into the Catholic faith are welcome to contact the Rectory at any time.
 
 
First Penance / First Eucharist
 
Children and parents are expected to participate in the parish based Sacramental Preparation Program which includes children attending both Holy Name School and Religious Education Classes. Any child older than third grade who has not received these sacraments is prepared individually by contacting the Rectory.
 
 
Confirmation
 
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a three-year process, beginning with the Rite of Enrollment of ninth graders and concluding with the celebration of the Sacrament with eleventh graders.  Combined sessions and retreats for students in Catholic and public school and their parents/sponsors are conducted each year.  Adults seeking Confirmation should contact the Rectory.
 
 
Matrimony
 
Couples preparing for the Sacrament of Matrimony should contact the Rectory at least six months prior to the intended date of marriage.  The Diocese requires participation in a Marriage Preparation Program.  Information can be obtained by contacting the parish Rectory or the Diocesan Family Life Office.
 
 
Anointing of the Sick / Communal Anointing Mass
 
Requests for Sacramental Anointing of the Sick can be made at any time by contacting the Rectory.  Once a year (July), a Communal Anointing Service takes place during a parish Mass for the benefit of the elderly and/or chronically ill.
 
 
Ordination
 
Information concerning permanent deaconate, priesthood, or religious vocations to Women's / Men's Religious Orders can be directed to the Diocesan Office of Vocations.  Or, for more information, go to our vocations page.
