Our faith formation program is a womb to tomb program.
Parents preparing for Baptism should contact the parish at least one month in advance for an appointment to have their child baptized. Parents meet with the pastoral administrator for a basic class on Baptism, fill out necessary paperwork, and learn about specific requirements regarding the Godparents and procedure regarding the ritual. A short video is part of the training.
Couples planning to marry should contact the parish at least one year in advance of their desired date to clarify if the church and priest are available. There is also a personal inventory assessment to take on line, and discussion of the results with the pastoral administrator, followed by regular meetings with marriage couple mentors. Additionally, basic paperwork is required and a discussion about the readiness, availability, and suitability to marry. Those with no previous marriages have a simple process. Those with previous marriages who have not obtained an annulment require more time.

SEEKING AN ANNULMENT? Contact the parish to set up an appointment for further discussion regarding the specific case and what is required.
