The session is required before a Baptism may be scheduled. Parents are also encouraged to attend sessions for new parents offered through the year. For parents of more that one child: please schedule a meeting with the Pastor to discuss requirements for baptismal preparation. Sessions are held the 1st Wednesday every month, except Holy Days, at 6:00 pm in the Parish Office.
First Pennance, First Eucharist, Confirmation
It is the policy of the Diocese of Memphis that any child wanting to celebrate the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Confirmation and/or Penance must be enrolled in a parish-based catechetical program for one year prior to beginning preparation for the sacraments. We recognize and support parents as the primary educators of their children in matters of faith but also acknowledge that the local church has the responsibility of ensuring the proper catechetical formation of those who desire the Church's sacraments.
Please call the parish office and schedule an appointment with the pastor at least five months in advance of the proposed wedding date. Church Law as well as diocesan and parish policy require that certain guidelines be met before a wedding may be scheduled.
Price for Parishioners - $800
Price for Non-Parishioners - $1,100
Please call the parish office before making funeral arrangements to confirm the availability of the Church, a Priest and or a Deacon, if a Funeral Mass is to be celebrated.
When a family member is hospitalized, call the parish office to request prayers and to arrange for a pastoral visit. According to the "Patient Privacy Act" it is the patient's and patient's family's responsibility to provide the patient's room number if a pastoral visit is desired.
Both preparation of candidates for Holy Orders and celebration of the sacrament are uniquely the responsibility of the Diocesan bishop and his staff.
Because these responsibilities are so closely regulated by both national and universal norms please contact The Catholic Diocese of Memphis by clicking here http://www.cdom.org/CatholicDiocese.php?op=Vocations
