Sacrament of Reconciliation
Saturday, 2:30–3:15 p.m. Confessions are heard on Saturday in the Church. Additional confession dates and times are available during the Lenten Season and are published in our parish bulletin.

Marriage
Individuals who wish to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage in the Church should be registered and practicing members of Our of Lady of Grace Parish. Since marriage is a sacrament not only for the couple but for the Church as well, a period of preparation and formation is required. Registered parishioners should contact the office at least one year in advance of making marriage arrangements.

Anointing of the Sick
Any parishioner who is ill, anticipating surgery, or in the hospital or a nursing home, may request the Sacrament of Anointing of the sick from a priest. Please be sure to advise the hospital or nursing home admissions office of your status as a Catholic. Contact the Parish Office if you need a priest for the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick in the hospital or at a weekday Mass.

Baptism
As an active, registered parishioner of Our Lady of Grace Parish, we warmly welcome you and your child as you begin preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism. Registered parishioners should contact the office to make arrangements. If possible, this should be done at least three months before the birth of the baby. Baptisms will be celebrated in April, August, and December.
