Celebrating 103 Years

Sacraments

Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated one Sunday per month.

Parents are required to attend a Baptism preparation class before celebrating the sacrament. Parents who are not parishioners will be invited to join the parish. Call 330-743-1109 to schedule your class.

Godparents: At least one Godparent must be an active, practicing Catholic who has been confirmed.

First Communion / First Reconciliation

First Communion is generally celebrated by children in the second grade; however, older children are  also welcome.     To be eligible to prepare for the sacrament, children should be regularly attending either our  inter-generational faith     formation sessions (Generations of Faith), or attending religion class at a Catholic  School.

In addition to regular monthly Generations of Faith attendance, children will be asked to attend an  additional monthly class to prepare for their sacraments.

First Reconciliation is scheduled for Saturday morning, March 1, 2014. First Communion will be held on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 10:00 AM Mass, when the entire group will celebrate the sacrament together.

Confirmation

Confirmation is celebrated every other year. Youth must be in the 8th grade or older and must attend Generations of Faith regularly as well as monthly preparation sessions with their sponsor or parent.

Currently we are preparing our candidates to celebrate the Sacrament on Sunday, February 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM.  We will celebrate with candidates and families from St. Angela Merici and St Luke Parishes at our parish church.

Marriage

Couples planning to marry should contact the parish priest at least six months prior to the wedding date. No wedding date will  be confirmed until the couple has met with the priest. He will assist the couple with their marriage preparation.
