First Communion

Holy Eucharist 

Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal.  We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins.  As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.

Sacrament of Holy Matrimony

Rite of Marriage 

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.


Arrange with the Pastor at least six months in advance 

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Rite of Penance

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Confession and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
