Sacraments

 

Anointing of the Sick:
The Sacrament of the Sick for those who are ill, hospitalized, or facing surgery may be    requested by calling the Pastoral Care office, 251-1102. Due to patient privacy guidelines, the Parish is not notified of hospital admissions. Please call the Parish Office at 251-1100 with admission information.
Baptism:
We use Call to Celebrate: Baptism in our infant baptism (birth to age 7) preparation program. Parents seeking baptism for their child are required to attend two sessions. Parents must register for the sessions in person at the parish office. It is preferred that both parents attend the sessions BEFORE the birth of their child. For older children (ages 7 to 14) please contact the Children’s Faith Formation office, 251-1135.
Confirmation:
Our confirmation process is a one year program for teens beginning with registration in the spring of freshman year (and extending to junior year for those who didn’t register during freshman or sophomore years). See the parish youth web page and bulletin for specific meeting times or call the Youth Ministry Office, 251-1107, if you have questions.
Marriage:
Please contact the Parish Office at 251-1100, at least nine months prior to your desired wedding date.
Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation for Adult:
The journey to becoming Catholic or completing the Sacraments of Initiation includes a period of preparation for children age seven or older and adults for the sacraments of Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is for adults who wish to learn more about being Catholic, or who are actively interested in becoming Catholic. For more information contact Mary Pat Storms in the parish office, 251-1113, or mstorms@olpls.org.
Parents of children ages seven to 14 who wish their children to become Catholic should  contact the Children’s Faith Formation office, 251-1135 to schedule a family interview or for more information.
Catholic adults who have not been confirmed may prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation in several ways.  Contact Mary Pat Storms for more information: mstorms@olpls.org or 251-1113.
