Sacraments

Sacraments of Initiation

Full adult membership in the Roman Catholic church is achieved with the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. Most Catholics born into our faith receive Baptism as infants, and First Eucharist in the second grade. Confirmation is often received in the eighth grade or high school.

Due to circumstances of all kinds, it may be desirable to receive these sacraments at a different time in your life. 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.
