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 of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.       Catechism of the Catholic Church §1213

Parents and guardians who have Infants for Baptism should call the Parish Office at 904-354-1501 for registration, requirements and preparation for the celebration of the sacrament.


Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.        Catechism of the Catholic Church §1422
Reconciliation is available every Saturday at 4.15pm between January and June of each year.


The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.      Catechism of the Catholic Church §1601
Couples intending to celebrate the sacrament should call the Parish Office at least six months before the planned wedding date.


By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them and indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.         Catechism of the Catholic Church §1499
The Sacrament of the Sick is available on request. Call the Parish Office at 904-354-1501
