“Go and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name
of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Parishioners may call the parish office (733-1630) to make
arrangements for the baptism of their child. Parents attend a
brief preparation session prior to the date of baptism.
Baptisms are scheduled monthly on particular Saturday mornings
or may be arranged to be celebrated during a weekend mass.
Children of catechetical age (age 7 and older) will participate
in the Catechumen ate process throughout one year.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon
you and you shall be my witness in Jerusalem and in all Judea
and Samaria and even to the end of the earth.”
The bishop administers the Sacrament of Confirmation every year,
usually in April. Candidates for the sacrament participate in a
special preparation program. Please contact the parish Director
of Religious Education (DRE) for information.
Jesus came and stood before them… then he breathed on them and
said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit, if you forgive men’s sins, they
are forgiven them, if you hold them bound, they are held
or by appointment. Communal parish penance services are
celebrated during Advent and Lent.
First Reconciliation (for children age 7 and older) involves
attendance in a sacramental preparation program. Contact the DRE
“While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, said a
prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. ‘Take
and eat it,’ he said; ‘This is my body.’ Then he took a cup,
gave thanks to God, and gave it to them, and said, ‘Drink it,
all of you, this is my blood, which seals God’s covenant, my
blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell
you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink
the new wine with you in my Father’s kingdom.’”
Weekend masses: see schedule.
Communion to the sick: Contact the Pastoral Care Coordinator at
the parish office to make arrangements for a Minister of Holy
Communion to visit the person.
“A man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife
and the two shall become as one.”
According to the policy of the Diocese of St. Augustine,
Florida, a couple planning to be married must make arrangements
with the priest at least eight (8) months in advance. The couple
meets periodically with the priest as part of the preparation.
They also participate in the day-long Pre-Cana Program or an
Engaged Encounter weekend.
Anointing of the Sick
“Is there anyone sick among you? Let him call for the presbyters
of the church, and let them pray over him and anoint him with
oil in the name of the Lord. This prayer made in faith, will
save the sick person, the Lord will restore his health, and if
he has committed any sins, they will be forgiven.”
The Sacrament of Anointing may be given to adults who are
seriously ill, preparing for surgery or weak due to age. Sick
children if they have sufficient use of reason to benefit from
the strength and consolation of the sacrament may be anointed.
Please contact the parish office.
