The Sacramental Life is an integral part of our Catholic Faith in which we celebrate Jesus' presence in our lives through ritual and symbol. The Church celebrates seven sacraments, which are divided into three categories.
Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, which usher us into the life of the Church.
Sacraments of Initiation:
Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick, which celebrate God's healing power.
Sacraments of Healing:
Sacraments of Vocation:
Marriage and Holy Orders, which help members serve the community.
Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life. Through Baptism we are freed from sin, reborn as children of God, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.
Please call the Church Office to begin the process of preparation for Baptism of Infants or Baptism of Older Children or Adults.
The Eucharist nourishes our life of faith. Those who gather for Mass receive God's word and the Body and Blood of Christ. The Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life.”
"You must be in communion to receive Communion."
To receive the precious Body and Blood of Christ, the Church teaches that you must be Catholic, properly disposed, and in good standing with the Church.
Confirmation seals our life in Jesus and empowers those who receive it with the gift of the Holy Spirit.
In Reconciliation (Penance or Confession) we receive God's unconditional love and forgiveness.
Reconciliation for the Christian faithful is held on Saturday afternoons one hour before Mass, or by appointment. Saturday Mass time is 4:00 pm September through May and 5:30 pm June through August.
Penance Services and Reconciliation are offered during Advent and Lent.
Anointing of the Sick
This sacrament gives spiritual strength and healing to those who are aged or ill by uniting their sufferings to the sufferings of Christ.
If you require the Anointing of the Sick, please contact the Church Office or Father Stephen.
The Catholic Church believes and teaches that marriage is a lifelong covenant of love between a man and a woman.
The Diocese of Little Rock requires preparation for the sacrament of marriage, which typically runs over the course of several months. To learn more about preparing for marriage, contact the church office at least six months before the intended wedding date. Marriage Preparation is provided on an as-need basis.
Men who are ordained as priests vow to live their lives leading others to a closer union with Christ, administering the sacraments and proclaiming the Gospel.
If you feel that God is calling you to the priesthood, permanent deaconate or religious life, please contact the church office or Father Stephen to provide assistance to make the necessary contacts to pursue your vocation.
