Sacraments

Baptism Baptism:     Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.  All people who are not yet baptized are invited to this sacrament: infants or adults. Christians should bring their children for baptism as they raise their family in the Catholic faith.
Baptism at St Gregory’s:    At least one parent must be a registered, practicing member of the parish.  Parents should arrange for a baptism at least three weeks prior to the desired date.  There is a nominal fee for Baptism. Contact the parish office for more details.
Confirmation Confirmation:     Along with Baptism and Eucharist, Confirmation is one of the sacraments of initiation.  Confirmation is necessary to complete the process in the soul begun at baptism. "For by the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obligated to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." It is through the sacrament of Confirmation that the Christian receives their full mission to bring the Good News to all the nations.
Confirmation at St Gregory’s:    Confirmation is a three-year program with the Sacrament of Confirmation taking place during the third year. Refer to the Religious Education page for more info.
AnnointingSick Anointing of the Sick:    Throughout His ministry Jesus had compassion for the sick, and through His many healings we know that God has visited His people. Jesus came to forgive sins and heal the soul, but he wants to heal the whole person and so he is a physician to the sick. His preferential love and care for the sick has continued through the centuries as Christians reached out to others in healing the body and the soul.  Through His passion and death on the cross Christ gave new meaning to suffering. In our illness, in our suffering we can be configured to Christ and we are united to his redemptive passion. It is from the cross that the power of the sacrament comes.
Who should receive this sacrament?     This sacrament is NOT only for those at the point of death. If you are receiving surgery, or are elderly, or have the possibility of death, it would be good to receive this healing sacrament. Refer to the Contact Us page for Father Pat's contact info.
Marriage Marriage:    Marriage is part of God's plan. It is part of the order of creation itself. The covenant of marriage is ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring. The covenant between a husband and a wife is raised by Christ to the dignity of a sacrament.
