SACRAMENT INFORMATION
RECONCILIATION/CONFESSION: Saturdays 4:30-4:45 p.m. and by appointment with the pastor
BECOMING A CATHOLIC (RCIA): involves the reception of three sacraments. Call if you or anyone you know is interested
in this process.
Catholics who wish to receive the following sacraments should be registered in the parish,
attend Mass regularly, participate in stewardship and be in good standing with the Church.
BAPTISM:
Infants—6 yrs old. Parents are required to register and attend a Baptismal Class prior to your child's Baptism.
CONFIRMATION:
Preparation is included with your attendance in one of our religious education programs.
EUCHARIST:
Please call if you or someone you know cannot attend Mass and desire Communion to be received
at home or another facility because of illness or advanced age.
MARRIAGE:
Please call four months in advance of the desired date. An actual date can only be set by the Priest or Deacon
after meeting with the couple.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK: This can provide spiritual strength and healing to those dealing with serious health issues.
Do not wait until someone is critical and unable to participate in prayer. Contact the Priest in advance
of elective surgery so that you can receive the Sacrament before entering a health facility. Upon registering at a
facility, state you are a Catholic and member of St. Ann Church.

BEING AN ACTIVE MEMBER of SAINT ANN CATHOLIC COMMUNITY……
…………...involves not only receiving the privileges of our Catholic faith (Mass/
Eucharist, other sacraments, education/formation opportunities, parish activities), but also giving of your time, talent and treasure.
We are many parts but all one body” Each of us has skills and talents to offer. Saint
Ann Catholic Community will thrive with each of us sharing our God given abilities. Please
prayerfully join one or many of the ministries offered within the faith community.
You can be an active member by attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days as well as
volunteering your time/talents in one of our many ministries. Regular use of the parish envelopes, even if you are only able to contribute minimally, is a gesture of support and unity.
Initially (if you are new to the parish or have never filled out information), it involves
some minimal paperwork so that we have some basic information on your family, including reception of the sacraments. Registering with the parish is required if you would like to have a
child baptized, desire to be married, need a letter of recommendation for sponsorship, request
last rites or apply for tuition subsidy. A record of your support in regards to time, talent and
treasure is important in those regards.
We are grateful for each and every one of you, as together we make up the Body of Christ.
