Sacrament of Marriage

Sacrament of Marriage

The Sacrament of Marriage requires about 8 months of preparation for the couple. The Catholic Church invests in the sanctify of Catholic Marriage by a FOCCUS Inventory, Pre-Marriage Retreat, and an introduction to Natural Family Planning. You will also prepare for your wedding liturgy with the priest. In order to secure the date and place of the wedding events, it is really important to begin this far in advance. The process is designed to enrich the couple’s relationship, love, self-understand, and prepare them for life long commitment to marriage.

Sacrament of Reconciliation & First Holy Communion

Sacrament of Reconciliation & First Holy Communion

The seven sacraments are outward signs instituted by Jesus Christ to impart grace. The Sacrament of Reconciliation continues Jesus’ ministry of forgiveness through this celebration of repentance, conversion, and reconciliation with God, with the community, and with one’s self. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a visible sign of God’s forgiveness.

First Holy Communion is the third of the seven sacraments received after receiving Baptism. At the heart of the Eucharistic celebration are the words of Christ and the invocation of the Holy Spirit, in celebrating the Eucharist we become united with the true relationship of Christ’s Body and Blood.

In preparation of receiving both the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, candidates must complete a two-year program.

Requirements:

7 years – High School
Baptised
Students above the normal age of first communion and confession, in other words, above the 3rd grade, attend RCIA for youths.
