Sacraments

The Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church represent the channels through which an individual receives the graces each represents. Our parish offers classes for both children and adults in preparation for receiving the Sacraments of Initiation into the Church. For those considering commitment in Matrimony, we provide spiritual instruction in preparation for this sacred vocation.
