Sacrament of Reconciliation
Confessions are on Saturday afternoons at 2:45 PM, or by appointment. Communal Reconciliation services are celebrated during Advent and Lent. There may be other opportunities for Reconciliation during the Advent and Lenten seasons. Please check the Bulletin.
Sacrament of Baptism
Baptisms for children, infant through seven years of age, are celebrated at any weekend Mass, except during Lent. A parent preparation class is required. To register for the class and to schedule a Baptism, call the parish office at 330-296-6434.
Preparation for First Reconciliation takes place in first and second grades. Children must be enrolled and attending a Parish School of Religion program or receiving religious instruction at an area Catholic School. The family must be registered in our parish and actively practicing their faith by regular Mass participation. Parents are required to attend a formation and preparation session in early fall to assist them with the home instruction portion of the preparation as well as join their child for a mini-retreat in early January. First Reconciliation is celebrated in the month of January each year.
First Eucharist is celebrated at least three months after the celebration of First Reconciliation. Children must at least be in the second grade and have participated for two years in a religious education program at an area Catholic school or our Parish School of Religion program prior to celebrating the sacrament for the first time. The family must be registered in our parish for at least six months and actively practicing their faith by regular Mass participation.
A program created to deepen parents’ understanding of Eucharist and assist them with their child’s preparation for the sacrament is provided by our parish. Parents are required to attend a preparation and formation session during the month of February and participate in a retreat with their child in April.
First Eucharist is usually celebrated at the 10:30 AM Mass in early May.

Confirmation for teens in grade 8 or older is usually celebrated in the spring after two years of preparation and participation in a PSR program or enrollment in an area Catholic school.
