Families who wish to celebrate a sacrament must be a registered member of The Church of St. Andrew and young people need to be enrolled and participating in a Faith Formation program or attending any Catholic school.  Sacramental preparation is in addition to these programs. A copy of each child’s baptismal certificate is required in order to receive Eucharist and Confirmation. If the child was baptized at The Church of St. Andrew, it is not needed.

Each of these sacraments is an efficacious sign in which we receive the grace and divine life of God through the work of the Holy Spirit.  Through the sacraments, especially baptism and the Eucharist, Jesus fulfills his promise to us: “Remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Mt 28:20).

The liturgy of the Church revolves around the sacraments.  Jesus entrusted seven sacraments to the Church: Baptism, the Eucharist, Reconciliation, Confirmation, Marriage, the Sacrament of the Sick and Holy Orders.
