Confessions are heard on Sundays and Holy Days 40 minutes before Mass and end 5 minutes before Mass begins. During the week, Father is available before all Masses and by appointment.
Stipends are not payment for spiritual benefits received, but are an offering of support for the priest who performs a sacramental rite or ceremony. The customary stipend when having Mass said for your intentions is $25.00. Masses are typically said within six weeks, a specific date may be requested.
Please see the pastor. Reminder: Novus Ordo and non-practicing Catholics cannot serve as godparents, since they lack the intention of seeing to the traditional Catholic upbringing of children. Please speak to the pastor regarding other requirements of the Church for godparents. Baptisms should take place within 2 weeks after birth. A grave reason is needed to delay it any longer.
The sacrament of Confirmation is administered once each year by His Excellency, Bp. Mark Pivarunas, CMRI. Please see Father to make arrangements.
If you are contemplating marriage, please make an appointment to speak with Father before setting a date.
