Sacramental Preparation

Sacraments are signs instituted by Christ, entrusted to the Church, and dispensed through the Church to give us the grace to live the life of a daughter or son of God. The sacraments sanctify us, make us holy, and build up the Body of Christ. They are living signs of God’s love and presence in our lives. They nourish and strengthen our faith.

The Sacrament Process is a family process. Preparing for the celebrating the Sacraments affects not only the participant, but also their immediate family and our parish family. The immediate family learns and grows in faith alongside the participant. The parish community is there to support, pray for, and be a faith witness for each participant and family. They, too, learn and grow closer in their relationship with the Lord through this process.

Celebrating Sacraments consist of the following:
  • Baptism
  • First Reconciliation
  • First Communion (Eucharist)
  • Confirmation
  • Adult Confirmation
  • Becoming Catholic – R.C.I.A.
