SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM:
Presenting a child to receive the Sacrament of Baptism is a serious obligation on the part of the parents and requires a Faith commitment by being practicing Catholics. Parents are to contact the Parish Office before attending the required instruction class. Further information will be given to you at that time.
SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE:
Call the Parish Office at least six (6) months in advance of the anticipated wedding. All couples must participate in the preparation program mandated by the Diocese. After the assessment process has been completed a wedding date may be scheduled.
