In This Section
As a Parish of the Catholic Church, we participate in the Sacramental Life established by Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Faithfully, our parish clergy administer the sacraments of Baptism, Penance (also called “Confession”), Eucharist, Confirmation*, Holy Matrimony, and the Sacrament of the Sick (also called “Holy Unction”).
The remaining sacrament, Holy Orders is only administered by a bishop in the ordination of Deacons, Priests, and Bishops.**
To arrange for a Baptism of a child, youth, or adult, please contact our parish office at 920.435.7548 for further information. Persons over the age of 5 years, will need to take part in a period of instruction prior to their baptisms.
