Confirmation Registration

Confirmation Registration forms are available in the vestibule and are open to registered and regularly attending parishioners only. While the archdiocesan age norm is 13 and older for the Sacrament, provision can be made for those younger with the approval of the pastor (albeit not younger than 11). Adults who have not been confirmed are encouraged to do so; please fill out a form as well.

Please return the forms either by mail, by placing in the mailbox, or by dropping them in the collection basket; forms are due by Sunday, September 1. Classes for the youth will begin September 15 and Confirmation will be conferred in December by Bishop Cozzens.

Thoughtful Attire for Mass

With warmer weather upon us (hard to believe), for the honor of God and His house, and for the edification of our neighbor, kindly remember to be thoughtful in one’s attire for Holy Mass. Using the Vatican dress code as a reliable guide, while casual dress is acceptable, please be sure that all clothing has sleeves that cover the shoulders, dresses reach the knee, and shorts and accentuating attire are altogether avoided. God reward you for your attention in these regards!

Parish Registration

Parish registration forms are available in the vestibule. Registration is encouraged as it assists the pastor to know to whom he is bound to provide pastoral care, enables him to baptize and witness marriages, as well as provide sacramental preparation for his parishioners. For this reason, and in justice and charity to the respective pastors, an individual or family should not be registered at two or more parishes, and should be attending their registered parish regularly. If address or status changes, please kindly inform the parish office.
