Baptism

Baptism is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 12.30 PM.  Please make arrangements in advance. Sponsors must be practicing Catholics and must have sponsor certificates from their own parish. Parents must attend a Baptism Preparation session which is held once a month – please contact the parish office for schedule.  All families wishing to baptize a child must be registered in the parish. 

First Reconciliation and First Eucharist

Children are prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist in our Religious Education Program.  Children should be enrolled in First Grade.  Adults are prepared for these Sacraments in our R.C.I.A. Program.

Diocesan policy requires arrangements be made at least one (1) year in advance. Please notify the parish as soon as you are engaged to discuss policies and available dates. 

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Confirmation

This sacrament is celebrated in the 8th year of Religious Education.  Adults who have not celebrated Confirmation may prepare for the Sacrament in our R.C.I.A. program. 

Sick Calls

Please call the parish office when someone is seriously ill.

Communion Calls

Anyone who is ill or unable to attend Mass please call the Parish Office .

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process where adults discern God’s call for them about the sacraments.  Those interested in joining the Catholic Church (from a different faith or denomination) as well as those who have been baptized Catholic but have not celebrated one or more of the other Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and/or Confirmation) are invited to join and discern how God may be calling you.  For information contact Carol Schulz at the parish office 732-792-2270 or cschulzstjoseph@optonline.net

Ordination
