The Sacrament of marriage is, first and foremost, a sign and symbol of God's love. Marriage is a sacrament of the self-giving love which two people offer to each other.
Please contact the parish no later than six months before your desired wedding date.
The Eucharist is the Sacrament in which we receive the Body and Blood of Christ. The Church teaches that Christ is truly present in the bread and wine that has been consecrated by the Priest during Mass. Although the bread and wine look and taste the same, the substance - what is actually there - has changed.
Baptism marks the entry of the believer into the Catholic community. It is one of the Sacraments of Initiation, giving access to the full sacramental life of the Church. Through Baptism we are joined with Christ, sharing in His divinity and destined for eternal life.
Confession is, above all, a place of healing, not a place of judgement or punishment. When we make our confession to a priest in the confidentiality of the confessional or reconciliation room, we experience healing and liberation, discovering again and again how much we are loved by God, how precious we are to Him, and how great is our dignity as His children.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is our own Pentecost. When we are confirmed, we receive the Holy Spirit, through the anointing with oil and the laying on of hands by the bishop or priest appointed by him.
