Adults who need the sacrament of Confirmation should contact a priest or deacon of the parish to make an appointment.
Couples should make arrangements at least six months in advance with a priest or deacon.
The privilege of serving God's people as a priest, permanent deacon, religious sister or brother is personally fulfilling and spiritually exciting. Anyone who feels they might be interested in the priesthood, diaconate or religious life should speak to a parish priest.

Anointing of the Sick
Pastoral care of the sick
Call the Rectory to arrange for a priest or Eucharistic Minister to bring communion to the homebound. In case where one's health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age, please contact one of the Priests to administer the sacrament of the anointing of the sick.
If you know you will be entering the hospital for elective surgery, it is appropriate and recommended to receive the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick before entering the hospital. Simply ask one of the parish priests to give you the sacrament before admission.
