Sacraments

sacramentsSacraments are the way our parishioners experience Christ in His Church from “womb to tomb”.  Parishioners and their families are encouraged to meet Jesus regularly in reception of Holy Communion and Reconciliation and to celebrate Christ’s presence in our lives and in our community through Baptism, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy Orders and the Anointing of the Sick.

Reconciliation: Saturday, 3:15 – 3:45 pm and by appointment (Also in Parish Calendar)

Eucharist for the home bound: Ministers of Holy Communion visit home bound members of our parish weekly so that they may receive Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.  If you or a family member are not able to attend Mass regularly because of age or infirmity, please contact Fr. Bob.

Anointing of the Sick: Please contact the parish office to make arrangements or, in an emergency, call Fr. Bob.  Please note that St. Luke’s Hospital also has a Catholic chaplain on staff for emergencies when a loved one is hospitalized.
