Sacraments are an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace. In the Catholic Church we have 7 sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing of the Sick. Look below to learn more.
“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.”
-Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

Application for Baptism
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” (John 20:21-23).
Reconciliation is offered every Saturday

Confirmation Change 2021-2022
The same Holy Spirit that descended upon the apostles, descends upon all those who receive the sacrament of Confirmation. In today’s environment, we want our youth to be armed with His Spirit and to be His Light. Therefore we are moving the age of Confirmation to the fall of 9th grade, preparing during 7th and 8th grades.
On March 5, 2022 we will confirm all 11th, 10th, and 9th graders, with the current 8th graders to be confirmed in the fall of their 9th grade year, date to be determined by the diocese.
Parent meeting for an overview of the program: Wednesday, October 6th, 6:45 pm
Confirmation: Saturday, March 5, 2022

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is an inquiry process for adults who are interested in learning more about and fully joining the Catholic Church. It is specifically designed for those 18 and older who have never been baptized, those who were baptized in other recognized Christian denominations, and adults who were baptized as Catholics, but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
Contact Father Paul for more information.
Anointing of the Sick will take place after the Masses on the weekend of October 23/24 for those feeling the effect of age and illness. If you are in need of anointing before or after this time, please call the parish office at 587-6507 or Fr. Paul at 507.829.0965.
