The Sacrament of Baptism becomes the basis of our Christian life, the gateway to life in the Holy Spirit, and the door which allows us to experience the other sacraments of the church.

Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God.  By being baptized, we become members of the Catholic Church and our parish family.

Children are normally baptized within a few months after birth.   A baptism preparation class is required. 

Please contact the Parish office at 801-984-7101 regarding Baptism questions and class schedule.

Please keep in mind when planning a baptism date, that this process can take a few months to complete.  We recommend starting 3 -4 months ahead of time.

Individual confession with a priest is the principal means of reconciliation of grave sins within the Church.  Reconciliation is held Saturdays 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm.  Individual reconciliation is available by appointment.  Please contact the Parish Office at 801-984-7101 for an appointment.

The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. 

The Sacrament of Confirmation enables the baptized person to be enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit and unites them to the Catholic Church to become true witnesses of Jesus Christ.

 The effects of Confirmation enables us to be more united to Jesus Christ, increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit within us, and deepens our involvement in the Catholic Church.

Teens:

Students wanting to receive the sacrament must prepare in the 7th and 8th grade year consecutively.  Saint John the Baptist Parish has two sessions for Confirmation classes; a spring and a fall session.  Please see Faith Formation - Teens - Confirmation for more details.

Adults:

Adult Confirmation program help those age 16 and older prepare for the sacrament through classroom, home and community opportunities. This is a program designed for those already baptized Catholic; that never received the sacrament of Confirmation.

 

Adults who have not been confirmed may inquire about the process to be received in the Catholic Church through RCIA, Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

Matrimony in the church is celebrated as a sacrament.  Preparation for Matrimony begins with an initial consult with a parish priest. 

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is given to those who are seriously ill, or who may be undergoing a serious surgery.  If it is possible, the Sacrament of Reconciliation precedes this sacrament, and is followed by the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. 

This ministry of healing is extended to priests who share in the healing mission of Jesus Christ. This sacrament is given to those who are seriously ill, who may be undergoing serious surgery, or in great need of God's healing in their lives. If it is possible, the Sacrament of Reconciliation precedes this sacrament and is followed by the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

If you or a family member wish to be anointed, please contact the parish office at 801-984-7101

 

Young men and women seeking to discern a vocation to priesthood or consecrated religious life are invited to contact Fr. Sherman, 801-984-7103.
