Sacramental Preparation (Baptism and Marriage)

Baptism Preparation

Baptism incorporates us into Christ and forms us into God’s people. It is the first sacrament of initiation. The Catholic Church baptizes people of all ages -- from infants to adults. To help prepare individuals and families for this sacrament, the Church offers various forms of formation.

At St. Matthias families choosing to baptize their infant are invited to attend a preparation class which offers insight and guidance concerning the Sacrament of Baptism. Classes are held quarterly and Baptisms are celebrated twice per month except during Lent.

Marriage Ministry

The purpose of Marriage Ministry is to prepare engaged couples for a strong Catholic Christian marriage. Weekend sessions are held twice a year. The team’s goal is to also provide support to all marriages through periodic enrichment opportunities.
