Sacraments of Initiation

Full adult membership in the Roman Catholic church is achieved with the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.

We would be honored and happy to help you along your sacramental journey. We regularly help children, youth, and adults prepare to receive these important sacraments.
