The Church, in her pastoral concern for persons preparing for marriage, wishes to emphasize the sacred and serious nature of the marriage covenant. As love joins man and woman, so they are bound more closely to God. With this thought in mind, couples should contact their Pastor well in advance of the wedding date (at least four months). The various options for Marriage Preparation will then be explained to the engaged couple.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is open for all who would like to inquire into our Catholic Faith. Those interested may call the Parish Office or Education Office anytime for further information. One’s presence in the R.C.I.A. program in no way obligates a person to join the Church.
Visitation of the Sick
In order to meet the spiritual needs of our sick, we ask that you please keep us informed of those who are ill at home, in the hospital, or in a nursing facility. Please notify Carol Isaacs in the Parish Office. Arrangements can be made for Communion visits to our homebound parishioners who are unable to attend Mass.
The parish priest is to be contacted before the family makes any arrangements with the funeral director. Family members are also asked to meet with the priest to prepare for the Funeral Liturgy. All funeral preparations and planning must go through the Parish Office.
