The Sacraments

are Gods way of inviting us into a deep, real relationship with Him and the life of the Church. It is in the Sacraments that we are nourished, loved, and sent out by God to bring all people into a life lived in Christ. 

    Sacraments of healing

    • Reconciliation

      As humans we often times fail to live as God calls us to live. Reconciliation allows us the opportunity to confess our shortcomings to God the Father while He excitedly waits to offer us His love and mercy. No sin is bigger than the mercy of God. 


      When:  Saturday at 11:00 AM

      Where: Confessionals in the Chapel.

    • Annointing of the Sick

      At one point or another, everyone becomes ill. It is a natural part of life.  James 5:14 reads, “Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the Church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.”
