The Blessed and Holy Sacraments

Each sacrament is the action of Christ and is the extension of His earthly ministry offered to the believer in the here and now. It is God reaching down to us, not our struggling to reach up to God. The focus is not on the priest, not on the individual, not on the church—the focus of attention is to be on Christ Himself.   We must never forget the most important focal point of all sacraments. It is Jesus Christ the Lord who is the supreme Sacrament. It is He who is active in the sacraments, both in the administration and in the reception of them.

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is celebrated at the Easter Vigil and on the anniversary Mass of the parish on the second Sunday of September.  A season of preparation is required.  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults: is the process whereby adults become members of the catholic Church.  For more info, please contact Fr. Jakob  before or after Mass.
