ANNOINTING OF THE SICK:  This sacrament is administered during the 5:00PM Mass on the first Saturday of the month.  Persons who are homebound, in the hospital, or in nursing homes are asked to call the Parish Office for the Sacrament of Anointing.

BAPTISM:  Parents who are expecting a child should call the Parish Office to arrange to take part in the Baptism Preparation Program.  We ask that the parents be registered as parishioners or if residing out of town that the grandparents be parishioners.  Baptisms take place once a month during the 11:00am Mass after completion of the Initial and Liturgy Preparation Sessions.

CONFIRMATION:  Confirmation preparation is made by participating in the Annunciation Faith Formation program. Please see the Youth Faith Formation tab for more information on the Confirmation program.

FIRST EUCHARIST and FIRST RECONCILIATION:  First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation preparation is made through the parish faith formation office, for students in both public and Catholic schools. Please see the Faith Formation tab for more details. 

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION:  To be a godparent for Baptism or a Confirmation sponsor the Church requires that a letter of recommendation is obtained.  This letter can be issued only to members of our parish who are Baptized and Confirmed, registered in the parish for at least three months, and regularly attend Mass and receive the sacraments.  Regular use of envelopes (even if empty) indicates attendance at Mass.  Married persons must have been married in conformity with the laws of the Church.  Out-of-town college students should receive a letter from their campus minister and those serving in the military should receive a letter from their Chaplain.

RECONCILIATION:  Confessions are heard each Saturday at 4:00 PM, or by appointment.  

RCIA:  Adults and children aged seven and over who wish to enter the Church or complete their sacraments are welcome to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults process.  Please visit our Faith Formation tab - RCIA page and contact the Parish Office for more information.



Stewardship is having the wisdom to understand that everything we have is a gift from God.
