  • Holy Eucharist

           As Catholics, we believe in the Real Presence of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Eucharist.  Therefore, all persons, including visitors, who are baptized Catholic or Orthodox, have received their First Communion, are actively practicing their faith and are living in a state of grace, are welcomed to participate in the Most Holy Eucharist.

          First Communion is normally administered to those students in 2nd grade after participating in our parish PSR program.  Please contact Leslie Niedzielski  at 740-928-3264 for further information.

          If you have been away from the Catholic Faith for sometime and are returning, we welcome you to attend any of our Masses and to participate in our parish activities.  In order to participate fully in the Holy Eucharist, you are encouraged to contact Father Hritsko and request an appointment to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Father makes every attempt to assist in making the Sacrament of Reconciliation a positive experience.  Please call the Parish Office 740-928-3266 to set an appointment.

 

  • Confirmation

           Celebrated every other year in our church in the child's 7th or 8th grade year.  Preparation includes a year long course, service hours, and a retreat before the Confirmation date.  For more information, please contact Leslie Niedzielski at 740-928-3264.

 

  • Marriage

           Active parishioners must contact the Pastor no later than 6 months prior to the tentative date of their wedding at 740-928-3266.

           Marriage preparation should begin as soon as possible after the engagement and before a wedding date is finalized.  The couple will need to attend a series of meetings with the Pastor to discuss both the spiritual and practical aspects of marriage.  Through the FOCCUS survey, the couple and the Pastor will become aware of any relationship issues which may need to be discussed before marriage.  Once an initial assessment by the Pastor and the Foccus survey are complete, the wedding date may be finalized.
