"Where All Are Welcome "
PARISH MEMBERSHIP:  We welcome all new people to our parish family.  We invite you to please register; forms are available in the parish office.  Families who move, please inform the office.


Before sacramental preparation can begin, you are required to be an active registered member for at least three (3) months.  This means attending weekend Masses, using your weekly envelopes, and taking part in parish activities.

BAPTISM OF INFANTS:  Baptism classes are at 7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month, and the sacrament is celebrated after the Saturday Mass of the following month.

BAPTISM OF ADULTS AND RECEPTION INTO FULL COMMUNION:  There is a period of preparation--generally from August to May.  Contact the Pastor.

RECONCILIATION:  Saturdays from 3:00-3:45 pm, Sundays from 5:00-5:45 pm, or anytime by appointment.  Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion begins in the fall.

MATRIMONY: Couples wishing to share their lives with one another and Christ in marraige and requested to contact the Pastor at least six (6) months prior to the tentative wedding date. Our diocese requires a six-month period of formation, including prayer and reflection on the meaning of the sacrament of matrimony before a marraige may take place.

Notify the pairsh office if you wish the Sacrament of Healing, as well as for visits and communion calls.
