The preparation for all of the sacraments, especially the Initiation Sacraments, is family based. Preparation for First Communion and Confirmation, demands the participation of a significant adult and hopefully that adult will be the one or both parents of the child being prepared. The Church, since 1961, has been calling for the education of our adults. Here at St. Joseph's, we take this challenge in a very serious manner. We believe that strong faith based homes are vital to the success of any process or programs that takes place in the Catholic Church.
Marriage, and the Anointing of the Sick and the Sacraments of Baptism and Reconciliation are always available at the parish. The sacraments of Marriage and Baptism require some preparation and so the office should be called well in advance of the date you are planning for these celebrations.
