The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.
Baptisms will be celebrated at 12:15 pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. You may also have your child baptized during any of the weekend masses.

All couples must contact the rectory at least six months prior to their wedding in order to participate in a marriage preparatory course.
Anointing of the Sick
Jesus showed great concern for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and commanded his followers to do likewise. Since then the church has continued to celebrate the sacrament of the sick for its members who are ill, so that Christ, himself, might strengthen the faithful who are afflicted by illness, giving them a strong means of support.
