"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded of you."  (Matthew 28:19-20)

Through Baptism, we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. We become members of the Body of Christ as we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission. We can’t wait to welcome your child into the life of Christ and our Church through Baptism.

"I am the living bread that came down from heaven"  (John 6:15)

The Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ. When we faithfully receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we grow deeper in communion with God and fellowship with one another.

"Confession is an act of honesty and courage - an act of entrusting ourselves, beyond sin, to the mercy of a loving and forgiving God."  (St. Pope John Paul II)

The sacrament of Reconciliation is about the mercy of Jesus Christ. Honestly confessing our sins reconciles us to God and restores us to his grace and intimate friendship. Confession breaks the power of shame and hurt of sin, and restores and revitalizes our relationships within the community of faith in the life of our Church.

Children prepare for Reconciliation through our religious education sacramental prep program or our parish school. If you're an adult seeking to receive Reconciliation, please complete the form below and our team will be in touch. 

"The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you."  (John 14:26)

 "Is anyone among you sick?  He should summon the presbyters of the Church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord."  (James 5:14)

Jesus showed compassion toward the sick and suffering. The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick extends God’s grace of spiritual strength, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with facing a serious health challenge, advanced age, or are near death. In this Sacrament of Healing, recipients are able to pray for healing of the body in addition to the spiritual healing of the soul that comes with the forgiveness of sins.
