Sacrament of Baptism

Infant baptisms are celebrated at any of the weekend liturgies, or after the 11:00 am Mass, following a catechesis for parents. Parents are encouraged to call the rectory for an initial appointment during the pregnancy.

Baptism class is scheduled with the Deacon.

Sacrament of Reconciliation 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. each Saturday or by appointment with a priest.

Sacrament of Matrimony

The Common Marriage Policy for the State of Missouri and the Archdiocese of St. Louis require that any couple preparing to celebrate the sacrament of marriage must allow for at least six (6) months of preparation prior to the wedding.  You may contact the clergyman of your choice and he will guide you through the process of preparing for your marriage.
