Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.
In order to receive the Sacrament at Holy Ghost, parents and godparents must attend our baptism preparation class. The schedule as well as the baptism and godparent forms are below.
**ATTENTION: due to a scheduling conflict, there will be no seminar in JUNE. We apologize for any inconvenience.**(posted 5/15/17, tbl)
**Please note: Baptism Seminars begin at 6pm (not 6:30pm) in the Daily Mass Chapel**
First Communion is a major rite of passage in the Catholic Church. As one of the seven Sacraments, First Communion typically falls around the age of 7, when a child is deemed capable of reason and therefore able to appreciate and understand the miracle of the Eucharist.
As part of the Sacramental Preparation, Holy Ghost Catholic Church has a preparation program for both the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Please complete the student information form below. First Communion is scheduled for January 7, 2017 at 10 a.m. (in English) and January 7, 2017 at 6 p.m. Mass (in Spanish)
The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the sacraments of Christian initiation. Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit to be true witnesses of Christ, and more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.
