St. Cecilia Catholic Community prepares registered parishioners to receive Baptism, Communion, Reconciliation, Confirmation and Marriage. In most cases, a person or family must be registered at least six months before the Sacrament. There is no formal preparation for Anointing of the Sick, though prayers and an examination of conscience are encouraged. *Preparation for Holy Orders is done at a regional or national level, generally through a seminary administered by an order of religious men or by a diocese.
Available each Saturday from 3 – 3:30 PM in the reconciliation room at church, or by appointment if you call one of our priests. Additional services are held in Advent and Lent (see events page for specific times during those seasons).
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
Available four times a year at the beginning of each weekend Mass, or by appointment. No longer used solely as preparation for a death, this sacrament of healing is encouraged for all people struggling with sickness: physical, mental or spiritual.
