Sacraments

Baptism:
The Sacrament of Baptism is available every Sunday. We celebrate the sacrament at 12:15 p.m. except on the 4th Sunday when it is celebrated during the 11:00 a.m. mass.  Parents are required to attend a baptism preparation class before celebrating the sacrament. Classes are held three times a year. Call the rectory in advance to make arrangements for all Baptisms.

As with all sacraments, these are parish celebrations. Students are prepared in second grade in cooperation with the day school or PSR program. First Reconciliation is celebrated in January.  First Eucharist is usually celebrated the second Sunday in May.

Reconciliation:
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated every Saturday from 3:15 to 4:00 pm, or by appointment.

 

Confirmation:
Students entering 9th grade are encouraged to apply for participation in the Confirmation program. Preparation begins in the fall, and continues until spring when the sacrament is received. This is a process of faith formation with monthly meetings, service opportunities, and retreat experiences.

Adult Confirmation:
This is for those adults who have had their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism and Eucharist) but have not yet received their Confirmation.  Yearly classes are held to coincide with the annual date for the celebration of the sacrament with our local bishop.

Pre-Cana:
A team of married couples presents an annual Pre-Cana Day for engaged couples.   The date is February 10, 2013 from 8:30-6:00 pm at St. Brendan’s.   Registration accepted until January 21, 2013. Forms are in the Rectory.

 

Couple’s Ministry:
Married couples are specially trained to meet with engaged couples preparing for marriage.

 

Adult Sacraments:
Adults interested in the Catholic faith or those who have been baptized, but not received Eucharist or Confirmation are encouraged to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).

Paragraph 473 of the RCIA says “no greater burden than necessary is required for the establishment of communion and unity” (with those who were baptized in a separated ecclesial communion– Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian, etc.).  Therefore, those who are already baptized may receive sacraments when they have been “doctrinally and spiritually prepared according to their own individual pastoral requirements”, Paragraph 477.

The Easter Vigil is reserved for those who need all 3 Sacraments of Initiation; Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.

Anointing of the Sick:
The sacrament of anointing is the proper sacrament for those Christians whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age.  It may be celebrated in the home, in a hospital or institution, or in church.  The parish celebrates this sacrament annually in the spring.  Hospitals and nursing homes have a Catholic chaplain on call who can assist families with this sacrament.  Please contact the parish if you are in need of the sacrament.
