Baptism: For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step (the entrance door) in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God. We believe in baptizing our children as infants to introduce them into our faith as their first step towards their discipleship to serve our Lord. We believe that all our children should be allowed to come into our faith thru this entry door of the sacrament of Baptism. In our Church Baptism is celebrated on a scheduled Sunday each month at 1:30pm in the Church. Parents must attend the required Baptismal Preparation class prior to the Baptism of their children. Classes are held according to schedule at 1:30pm in the basement of the rectory, entrance door next to the garage on the ground level on 46th Street. Please call the rectory and speak with Fr. Sergio to schedule your Baptism or with Fr. Hermes for Spanish Baptisms on the Saturday eve Mass. We want the parents to know that we will work with you to make sure that your child is baptized in our Church; please contact us with ANY concerns you might have especially if you have any concerns about the requirements for the Godparents you have chosen. To be a Godparent you must be registered in a Catholic Church for at least 3 months and be a practicing Catholic. This means that your name is on file with the parish office to receive the envelopes and that you attend Mass regularly. To request a copy of your baptismal certificate
Saturday 4:00PM to 4:45PM - The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also
known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has
three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find
God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive
Eucharist: Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a
sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died
for our sins. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished
spiritually and brought closer to God - see our mass schedule above to
celebrate the Eucharist - The order of the Mass
and Guidelines for Receiving Holy Communion
Marriage: The Sacrament of Matrimony requires an extensive period of
preparation. Contact the rectory one year prior to the wedding date - For
Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign
that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public
statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family
values and also God's values.
Anointing of the Sick: The Catholic sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness. Please call the Parish Office 201-436-2222
Ministry to the sick and gravely ill: Monthly Eucharist Liturgies in Church during the year. Please call the rectory; the Eucharist can be brought to them at home for those of advanced age and very ill.
