CONFIRMATION

The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” CCC 1285

It is encouraged that baptized adults who have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation, to go through faith formation. One can sign up for RCIA. For confirmation of teenagers, please refer to Secondary Catechism section.

Please submit your registration:

RECONCILIATION

"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion." CCC 1422

Due to the pandemic, confession is by appointment only. Please contact the Parish Office.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

"By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.” CCC 1499

If anointing is required before an operation, please contact a priest of the parish or the Parish Office before admission to hospital.
