Receiving the Sacraments

Each of the seven sacraments instituted by Christ is an outward sign of an inward grace. Through the sacraments we are given the graces necessary to truly live for and with God. Find the sacrament you need to receive. 

Fall registration for K-12th grade Sacraments is open now, and the deadline to register is Friday, October 16 at 5 p.m. Due to the materials covered, our sacramental preparation classes are in-person only and no late registrations can be accepted.  Those who wish to receive a sacrament should also register for a Faith Formation class. Those classes give the option of being in-person or remote. (Adults should call the church office to make arrange for any sacraments they are in need of).

After reading the information on this page and the related sacrament page, you may register for the preparation class. Registration forms can be downloaded on either the Events Page or on the RE page on this site after Friday, September 11. Only one sacrament per year can be received with the exception of Baptism, which can be combined with 1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion.

Anointing of the Sick

"Is any among you sick? Let him call for the (presbyters) of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven." 
              -St. James 5:14

Holy Orders

"Thus the risen Christ, by giving the Holy Spirit to the apostles, entrusted to them his power of sanctifying: they became sacramental signs of Christ. By the power of same Holy Spirit they entrusted this power to their successors. This "apostolic succession" structures the whole liturgical life of the Church and is itself sacramental, handed on by the sacrament of Holy Orders."
                   -CCC 1087
