Sacrament of Initiation

Infant Baptism

Parents are requested to make arrangements and participate in baptismal preparation prior to the third trimester. Please contact Rhonda Lomonaco at 669-9220. The family is required to be registered and practicing members for six months prior to the celebrating of Baptism.

Eucharist

The sacrament of Holy Eucharist is celebrated for the first time in the second grade. Classroom preparation is supplemented with family gatherings. These gatherings will provide opportunities throughout the year for the children, their families, and catechists to journey together as they prepare for a lifetime of being nourished at the table of the Lord. Please contact Chris Baker at 669-0820.

Confirmation

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation may be celebrated when a candidate is in the eighth grade or older. As our young people continue the initiation process we help them to understand that Confirmation is the completion of Baptism. The Sacrament of Confirmation completes our welcome into the Church, seals the Holy Spirit received at Baptism, and strengthens us on our journey of faith. Please contact Bernadette Jones at 669-0820.
