BAPTISM

Parents must register 6 months prior to baptism, attend a parent interview and baptism preparation class before the baptism is scheduled. Call the parish office for information and class schedules.

R.C.I.A.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which adults become members of the Catholic Church. It is a process in which the whole parish participates as we pray with the candidates for reception into the church. All of us have the responsibility of bringing the GOOD NEWS of Jesus to others. This process begins in the fall and continues through Pentecost. The highlight is the Holy Saturday celebration in which the candidates join the church and are Confirmed.

Marriage

Engaged couples are to contact the priest to perform the ceremony at least 1 year in advance. Wedding dates are scheduled after the initial appointment has been made. Inquiry classes are offered for couples planning marriage, at least one of the engaged must be a registered parishioner.

Foccus
