Please contact the Parish Office 352-347-9317 if you wish to arrange an appointment with a priest or deacon for any of the following sacraments.
Registration with the parish is desired.
Baptism incorporates the individual into the Body of Christ as a member of the church. This sacrament may be received as a child or as an adult. Arrangements begin by meeting with one of the Deacons of our parish.
Parents and sponsors should be registered with the parish prior to the Baptism. Certificates of eligibility of Godparents will need to be provided one month prior to the Baptism.
The Eucharist is the preeminent sacrament of Christ's presence in the faith community. The Body and Blood of the Lord is the "source and summit" of the entire Christian life. Arrangements for 'First Communion' begin by meeting with one of the Deacons of our parish.
Communion Calls: Request for Eucharistic Ministiers to bring Communion
to the sick or homebound can be made by calling the parish office.
Confirmation is the seal of Baptism. Receiving confirmation indicates that the person is willing to commit themselves to the baptismal promises made earlier, and to take on the tasks of loving and caring about others all through life. Arrangements begin by meeting with one of the Deacons of our parish.
In the sacrament of Marriage, God consecrates the love between a man and a woman and makes it grace filled. The marriage bond reflects Christ's commitment to the Church and is a lifetime commitment. Arrangements begin by meeting with one of the Deacons of our parish.
Marriages need to be arranged at least six months in advance. The church date should be reserved prior to scheduling the reception.
Anointing of The Sick
The sacrament of Anointing is for those members of the Body of Christ who are suffering from an illness, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. The Priest anoints the individual and prays for the healing of the whole person, proclaiming Christ as the giver of life. For immediate spiritual care, call the Parish Office and ask for a priest who will respond to the need appropriately.
Reconciliation is God's way of "putting us back together." Sin has the effect of seperating us from God, from the good in ourselves, from the church community, and from people hurt by our sin. Reconcilation allows us to once again restore peace with others, and to discover peace within ourselves. The sacrament of reconciliation is given Saturday after the 8AM mass and 1 hour prior to the first Saturday vigil mass (typically 3PM to 3:45PM) or by appointment.
