Sacraments

Baptisms:  

If you wish to be baptized or to have your child baptized into the Church, please contact Father Mark no later than one month in advance to make arrangements. You need not be a member of the church to be baptized or have an infant baptized.
 
Confirmation: 
Confirmation classes are held each year, and the Sacrament of Confirmation is usually administered by the diocesan bishop. 
 
Word of God: 
The Polish National Catholic Church is unique in the Catholic Faith. The hearing of the Word of God read from the Scriptures and Preached in the Sermon is considered a Sacrament. 
 
Weddings: 
Please contact Father Mark no later than six months prior to the date you wish to have the Sacrament of Matrimony celebrated. 
 
Holy Eucharist: 
Any baptized Christian who believes in the real presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist is invited to receive communion.  If you do not wish to receive the Blessed Sacrament, you may come forward to receive a blessing from the priest.
 
Sick Calls, Home Visits:  
Father Mark is available for sick calls and home visits at any time. We would especially like to reach out to all homebound Members and Friends of the parish and bring them the Holy Eucharist. Please call the parish office or the rectory to let us know if you would like Father Mark to visit a friend or family member. Also, in order to respect personnal needs and desires, when someone is hospitalized, Father Mark will visit if specifically asked.  
Remember, in an emergency call immediately so that God may assist you through our ministry. 

 
Funerals: 
The Burial of the Dead may include a celebration of Holy Eucharist. The liturgy for the Burial of the Dead is a resurrection liturgy characterized by a sense of the celebration of the life of the person who has died and is most appropriate to the occasion as well as affording comfort to the bereaved. The death of a Parishioner should be communicated as soon as possible (preferably before calling the funeral director).
