SACRAMENTAL LIFE

BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASS

BAPTISM – Baptism preparation class for the parents will be held in the Chapel Annex as required. Parents need to be registered parishioners. Parents should request the sacrament at least one month prior to the desired date. Contact Eileen Shea at 663-2003.

 

FIRST PENANCE AND FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Grade one is now a prerequisite for entrance into the FIRST SACRAMENTAL PROGRAMS. Preparation for this program will take place in the second grade for the children. A meeting for the parents will take place at the beginning of the new CCD year.

CONFIRMATION

CONFIRMATION – Confirmation will be administered this year. See Mike Walter for details.

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION – The sacrament is celebrated from 4:20 to 4:50 PM on Saturday and from 8:30 to 8:50 AM on Sunday. The sacrament may be requested of the priest on Friday after the noon Mass.

MARRIAGE

MARRIAGE – If you are planning to marry and at least one of the couple is active military, you should contact Rosemarie Blades to arrange for the necessary pre-Cana sessions.  This should be done at least six months before the planned wedding date. If neither of the couple is active military, the marriage preparation has to be initiated with the pastor of either party.  In most cases for those living in the vicinity of Dahlgren, that would be the pastor of St. Elizabeth Parish, Colonial Beach.

SACRAMENT OF HEALING

SACRAMENT OF THE HEALING – If you are in need of the Sacrament of the Healing because of an illness or a stay in hospital or need to request it for a family member, contact the chapel office at 653-8297. The sacrament will be administered by the weekend priest so please call as soon as possible so arrangements can be made.
