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 which can be found in the video below. The child and godparent forms must be completed and returned to Trisha Labbe. Baptisms will be scheduled once all paperwork is received and requirements are met.
IMPORTANT: At this time, due to COVID-19 and under the directives by Bishop Duca, all baptisms are done PRIVATELY with up to 15 people in attendance including the priest (all in attendance must wear a mask, not a faceshield/splashguard). Please also strongly consider giving a stipend to the presider as it is greatly appreciated.
Baptism Seminar: In good faith, watch the video below. After completion, please complete the attestation form and return to Trisha Labbe.
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 using the Blessed Series by Dynamic Catholic.

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.
