SACRAMENTS

There are seven Sacraments of the Church which touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:  they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.

Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation

Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick

Sacraments of Service: Holy Orders and Matrimony

Sacrament of Initiation

BAPTISM

The Sacrament of Baptism is administered on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month; arrangements need to be made in advance at the rectory. New parents are required to attend Baptism preparation class (held 1st Wednesday of the month) and expectant parents are most welcome at these classes. 

More Information on Infant Baptism

HOLY ORDERS

Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.

Those considering a call to the priesthood or diaconate may discuss this with the parish priests or deacon. For information call the Vocation Office for Diocesan Priesthood at 610-667-5778 or the Department of Permanent Deacons at 610-664-2213.

MATRIMONY

Weddings are scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays. Arrangements for weddings should be made ten to twelve months in advance. Requests for non-parishioner weddings are also welcomed. Please call the rectory at 215-887-1501 to make arrangements. Please note, one party must be Catholic and both parties must be free to marry.
