Marriage

The celebration of this sacrament requires an initial interview and proper preparation. Do not make arrangements for a wedding date, reception, etc. until you have spoken with the priest.

Call the Rectory for an appointment at least six months to a year prior to your wedding date. Couples from other parishes who want to be married at St. Philomena Church should be prepared for marriage by their own parish priest.

Baptism

Infant Baptism is scheduled generally every other month. Both parents are required to attend preparation classes and liturgies.

Unbaptized children older than six must participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC) before being baptized.

Baptized Christians who wish to join the Church are asked to contact the Parish Office for more information.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for non-baptized people who are interested in becoming members of the Church.
