In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness. If you have received the call to serve the Lord, and you are considering in becoming a priest or a nun, you may contact our Senior Pastor for spiritual guidance.

For any couple the decision to marry is a life-changing step. The Sacrament of Matrimony blesses their union and brings the gift of the Holy Spirit, and this grace is a support throughout their lives, in times of joy and times of trial. Couples planning to marry should make an appointment to see the Senior Pastor at least six months before the proposed wedding date, as a great deal of administration must be completed before a Catholic marriage can take place. They will also attend a course on Marriage Preparation. This focuses on their relationship and their hopes, gives an understanding of the Sacrament of Matrimony and a deeper awareness of their future, life-long, commitment. Contact the PLC to schedule an appointment firstname.lastname@example.org
Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God. We provide free training for current and new Eucharist Ministers quarterly.
