There is always a place for you at All Saints Parish.
“Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life.”Catechism of the Catholic Church
A Sacrament is a rite or ceremony instituted by Jesus and observed by the Church as a visible sign of grace. Sacraments point to what is sacred, significant, and important for Christians, and they are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence.
Baptism is one of the three sacraments of Christian initiation, along with the sacraments of the Eucharist and Confirmation. Baptism brings us into the Body of Christ and membership in the Catholic Church. Through our Baptism we are called to be disciples of Christ and enter into the work of Christ in the world.
At All Saints Parish, the Baptism of children (under the age of seven) should be arranged in advance by contacting the Pastor. If you have not been baptized or were baptized in another faith tradition, and are interested in Baptism in the Catholic Church, please see the RCIA Process page. Our RCIA process invites individuals into the Catholic Church.
As well, if you are not Catholic or are Catholic and have not received the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation, please see the OCIA Process page.
The Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Our parish comes together with the community to celebrate the Eucharist. Please see our calendar for daily and weekend Masses.
First Communion with Children – First Communion is typically celebrated in the spring with children of second grade age. Families are to attend Family Faith Formation sessions. Children/families will also participate in sacramental preparation. Please contact the parish for Family Faith Formation information.
Homebound Communion – Communion to the homebound is a ministry of our parish. Please contact the parish office for more information. If you are an adult who has not received this sacrament please see the OCIA Process page.

For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Confirmation is typically celebrated with high school sophomore age youth. Confirmation is celebrated every other year. For more information, please contact the parish office. If you are an adult who has not received this sacrament please see the OCIA Process page.
The forgiveness of sins committed after Baptism is conferred by a particular sacrament called the sacrament of conversion, confession, penance, or reconciliation. (Catechism of the Catholic Church)
The sacrament of reconciliation is offered weekly at All Saints Parish. Communal celebrations in the Parish are offered during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Please refer to the Parish calendar for day/time.
First Reconciliation is celebrated in conjunction with preparation for First Communion with children. Families are to attend Family Faith Formation sessions. Children/families will also participate in sacramental preparation. Please contact the parish for Family Faith Formation information.
Anointing of the Sick
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age. Each time a Christian falls seriously ill, he may receive the Anointing of the Sick, and also when, after he has received it, the illness worsens.
Our Parish celebrates this sacrament individually (after Mass) and during a Sunday liturgy annually. Please see a Parish Pastoral Team member to arrange for an anointing after Mass or call the Parish Office. It is best to arrange the anointing while the person who is ill can participate.
“Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)
If you are interested, have any questions, or would like to explore a vocation to the priesthood, please contact a priest or the Diocesan Office of Vocations.
The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. Marriage gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church. (Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Couples planning to be married should contact a priest at least 6 months before the wedding date. This ensures time for adequate preparation.
