Sacraments

Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.

First Holy Communion

Children are prepared to receive their First Holy Communion in the third grade. For preparation information please contact the church office. First Holy Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, May 6, during the 9:00 AM Mass.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Confessions are heard on Fridays at 6:30 PM and on Saturdays at 3:15 PM.

Sacrament of Baptism

Parents wishing to initiate their children into the faith through this sacrament should speak with the pastor.

Sacrament of Confirmation

The youth of the parish normally receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at the age of 15 or 16 which corresponds usually to the 10th grade. For information about preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation please contact the church office.

The Sacrament of Matrimony

Couples interested in entering into the Sacrament of Marriage are asked to contact the pastor to discuss pre-marital preparation.

Sacrament of Holy Orders

Is the priesthood for you? Call: Office of Vocations (860) 286-7670 or visit: www.vocationshartford.org.
