Sacraments

Baptism

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God, a new birth into the life of Jesus Christ.

Marriage

The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign in the Catholic Church that one gives oneself completely and permanently to one’s spouse. Catholics who marry are expected to celebrate marriage under the auspices of the Catholic Church. Preparation is required.

Wedding Music

Our Music Ministry, led by our Director of Liturgy and Music, Kenneth Louis, will assist you in providing music for your special day. As soon as possible in your planning process, call the parish office to set up an appointment to have a consultation with the Director of Liturgy and Music or email him at kenneth.louis40@gmail.com.

Reconciliation

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance) is the church’s celebration of God’s unconditional forgiveness. God forgives sins whenever a person is sorry for their actions. Confession is a part of the community process of bringing the repentant sinner back into the full life of the church community.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation at Our Lady of Lourdes is celebrated every Saturday at 4:30 p.m, as well as by individual appointment with a priest.
