Sacraments of Initiation
The Sacraments of Initiation usher a person into the life of the Church. There are three sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Adults interested in becoming Catholic are fully initiated into the Church, receiving all three sacraments at once. Children receive these at different times in their lives.
This is an introduction into the Community of Faith.
Baptism classes for parents of children to be baptized are held once a month. Please call for the schedule and to register.
We partake in the Eucharist sacrament in remembrance of Jesus's instruction at the Last Supper when he gave his disciples bread, saying, "This is my body", and wine saying, "This is my blood." "Do this in remembrance of me."
Catholic youth and adults, and those becoming Catholic, are strengthened and sealed by the Spirit. At Annunciation our two year program of preparation for Confirmation for young people ordinarily begins with the start of high school. There are six Sunday evening sessions in each of the two years of candidacy. The program concludes with the celebration of Confirmation in the spring of the 2nd year. The schedule of program is planned to be a support and complement to Annunciation’s Youth Ministry Program/AYM. Confirmation Candidates are encouraged to fully participate in the full range of opportunities in our parish youth ministry experience.
Sacraments of Healing
We ask the Lord for forgiveness in these sacraments.
A Christian is to be reconciled with God and the community through the sacrament of reconciliation.
Anointing of the Sick
To support and strengthen those who are sick.
We celebrate Anointing of the Sick twice a year and upon request.
Sacraments of Vocation
Vocation Sacraments are the preparation for Sacraments of a special "lifestyle" calling.
The love between a man and a woman is a gift and a calling from God.
