Sacraments of Initiation - Contact the Director of Religious Education for more information.


Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults involves preparation for and celebration of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, which manifests the intimate relation of these sacraments to one another.

Christian Initiation of Children

The faith of parents who are Catholic, together with their intention to raise their child in that same Catholic faith, is a necessary prerequisite for celebrating this sacrament.


Students are to be confirmed in the Seventh or Eighth grade.


The Eucharist is the sacrament in which Christian initiation reaches its culmination, for in and through this sacrament, Christians are fully joined to Christ. Therefore, individuals preparing to receive Holy Communion should be mindful to hold the Blessed Eucharist in highest honor and to reverence the Sacrament with the greatest adoration.

Children are prepared for reception of the Eucharist during Second grade. Before receiving First Communion children first receive the Sacrament of Penance.

The Eucharistic Fast is limited to one hour before actually receiving the Eucharist. It pertains to all solid food and all drinks, except water.


Sacraments of Healing

Penance (Reconciliation)

Catholics are encouraged to receive reconciliation monthly throughout their lifetime to benefit from the graces obtained through reception of this sacrament. You can receive reconciliation one half hour before each Mass or anytime by appointment.

Anointing of the Sick

Contact the Parish Office if you or a family member would like the anointing of the sick.

Sacraments at the Service of Communion


Arrangements should be made six months in advance. Contact Pastor Everett Pearson for more information.
