Sacrament of Baptism: Baptisms are normally celebrated after a weekend Mass. Please contact the Parish Center for information regarding the preparation class and to schedule. Faith Formation: The education of our children in the life-giving truths of our Faith is the heart of our mission as a parish. St Mary’s School accepts children in pre-K through grade 8. Children enrolled in the public schools grades K-10 attend Religious Education classes at their respective parishes on Sunday mornings. Students in High School attend Confirmation classes. Our Youth Ministry group meets once a week for faith-filled activities. Marriage Preparation: Marriage arrangements should be made at least 6 months in advance by calling the parish office for an appointment. Pre-Cana attendance is required. Anointing and Visits to the Sick: Please notify the Parish Center of a family member’s admission to a hospital or nursing care facility, or of confinement at home to arrange for spiritual care, Holy Communion and/or Anointing of the Sick. The Mass from St Mary’s is televised on cable channel 2 at 10 AM on Sunday mornings. Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA): Are you interested in becoming a Catholic? RCIA is a process for becoming a fully initiated member of the Catholic Faith. It is for those who are seeking Baptism in the Catholic Faith, those who have been baptized in another Christian tradition & now seek to be a member of the Catholic Faith, & for those who have been baptized Catholic but have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation & Eucharist. For St Mary’s, contact Bob Bell at 756-9221 or Caleb Payne at 299-4356 and St Anthony’s, contact Stephanie Passeri-Densmore at 756-6723.
