Sacraments

 

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Confessions are heard in the on the porch of the Parish Rectory on Saturday afternoons from 3:00-3:30, or by prior appointment, in a contact free and safe environment.

 

Sacrament of Baptism

Parents requesting the baptism of their child should be active, registered members of the parish who attend weekend Mass on a weekly basis. Families must be currently registered in our parish census. Baptisms are currently scheduled on Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm and are celebrated inside Saint Mary church, 14 Park Street.

Based on our guidance from the Commonwealth and the Diocese we have adopted new guidelines for our families. We are baptizing children from multiple families (no more than four families) at each date.  There will be no rows roped off, all seating is available. For those who are fully vaccinated, masks are not required, and for those who are unvaccinated masks are requested and strongly urged, as families with children who are unable to be vaccinated are present.  Everyone is welcome to wear a mask if they choose and you are welcome to request them for your family and friends. There is no limit on seating.

Baptisms are generally scheduled on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month. Exceptions to this model occur on weekends when weddings are already scheduled on one of those dates.  Please contact the office to inquire about available dates, you  can be penciled in an available date at that time. All appropriate paperwork must be returned to the office in order to confirm baptism scheduling.  Your date is not confirmed until all signed and completed paperwork is returned to the office. You may email the office for forms to be sent to you either via email or mail. The forms are also found below.  Please contact the office at stmaryna@noozi.com for more information regarding preparation, paperwork and the current fall schedule.

Please do not complete and return paperwork before contacting the office.
