Sacraments

Baptism

Baptism is the first Sacrament of initiation into the Catholic faith and the basis of the whole Christian life. Through Baptism we are reborn of water and the Holy Spirit, and we are invited to share in Jesus Christ’s mission on Earth.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Reconciliation (confession) is the Sacrament of genuine and ongoing conversion and God’s gift of guaranteed forgiveness and mercy. Sin fractures our friendship with Jesus and with our brothers and sisters.  Reconciliation grants us God’s forgiveness of our sins and restores our friendship with Him and with His Church.

Reconciliation Times:
Weekdays: 11:30am
Saturday: 3:00pm
Sunday (Spanish): 11:45am

Holy Communion

Eucharist (Holy Communion) in the Catholic Church is a Sacrament and a Sacrifice and is the summit and source of our Christian life. We believe that the consecrated bread and wine are truly the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ as given to us through His Apostles at His Last Supper. This is truly the Sacrament of love, unity and remembrance.

Confirmation

Confirmation is the anointing with sacred chrism by the bishop or priest which signifies the gift of the Holy Spirit. This Sacrament gives us special divine strength to share and “defend our faith by word and action as true witnesses of Christ” and never to be ashamed of his Cross. (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1303)

Marriage

Marriage is “the matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life and is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1601)

*Engaged couples should contact the parish office a minimum of six months in advance in order to complete the necessary preparation.

Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the Sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to His apostles continues to be exercised until the end of time: thus it is the Sacrament of Apostolic Ministry. It includes bishops, priests and deacons.

Anointing of the Sick

The Catholic Church believes and confesses that among the seven Sacraments the Anointing of the Sick is especially intended to strengthen those who are being tried or tested by illness. This Sacrament unites our sufferings with the passion of Christ. The Holy Spirit gives us the grace to be at peace and courageous in overcoming difficulties that come with “serious illness or the frailty of old age”.
