The Sacrament of Baptism becomes the basis of our Christian life, the gateway to life in the Holy Spirit, and the door which allows us to experience the other sacraments of the church.

Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. By being baptized, we become members of the Catholic Church and our parish family.

Children are normally baptized within a few months after birth. Baptisms are held for registered members of the parish the second and third Sunday of each month, and a short series of classes in preparation for baptism are required.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation offers the opportunity for a Catholic person to receive forgiveness for sins they have committed Parish Reconciliation Service and are reconciled with the Catholic Church.

God's forgiveness has been offered thorough Jesus Christ and extended to His Church by priests asking the forgiveness of God upon a Catholic person. Jesus Christ began this Sacrament of Healing for all sinful members of his Church.

Holy Family Faith Formation seeks to support parents as they share the Faith with their children. We will provide the necessary materials for each family to use at home. Our clergy, staff and volunteers will show you how to implement regular prayer and study in your home as well as answer your catechetical and practical questions. Additionally, we will assist you by offering incentives to children for their diligent participation.  

 

Reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at Holy Family is Easter Sunday at the Noon Mass. Those interested in preparation classes should contact Monica Conro, Director of Family Evangelization.

Holy Orders is the Sacrament through which men receive from God the grace to perform the sacred duties Christ entrusted to His Church. The Twelve Apostles were the first priests and bishops of the Church. Through the ages men have been ordained as bishops and priests by the laying on of hands to continue the mission of Christ and His Church.

In the early Church, the order of Deacon was created to assist the priest in the mission and service to the Christian community. (Acts 6:2-6) Today, deacons help the priest at the celebration of Mass, the baptism of children, the witnessing of marriage, and the celebration of funerals. They are ordained to serve and care for the needs of the Church's faithful as well as the poor, the sick, and marginalized of the world. The permanent diaconate is often comprised of married men. Through a call from God and affirmed by the local bishop these men assist in parishes.

In the Latin Rite, a man who becomes a priest must be unmarried. He is to promise a life of chastity and obedience to the Church and his local bishop. His call comes from God and is affirmed through his bishop. By the laying on of hands the man becomes a priest who acts in the Person of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, anointing of the sick, the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and all the other Sacraments.

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick extends the healing of Jesus Christ for those who are ill and are suffering.

This ministry of healing is extended to priests who share in the healing mission of Jesus Christ. This sacrament is given to those who are seriously ill, who may be undergoing serious surgery, or in great need of God's healing in their lives. If it is possible, the Sacrament of Reconciliation precedes this sacrament and is followed by the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

If you or a family member wish to be anointed, please contact the parish office.
