Please fill out the form available in the vestibule and turn it in to the Pastor or to the parish office. Reminder: Novus Ordo and non-practicing Catholics cannot serve as godparents, since they lack the intention of seeing to the traditional Catholic upbringing of children. Please check the Baptismal form to see the other requirements of the Church regarding godparents. Baptisms should take place within a month after birth. A grave reason is needed to delay it any longer.
The Sacrament of Matrimony
For practicing traditional Catholics only. Contact the pastor at least 6 months before the wedding date for marriage instructions. The best man and maid of honor of the marriage should be Catholics, since they are the official witnesses to the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Sacrament for the Sick
Please arrange for a priest to bring the sacraments to the sick (Holy Communion, confession, Extreme Unction) with Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI. You may call his cell phone (868-5881) or the rectory. If anyone is in danger of death, please call either of the priests immediately!
The Sacrament of Confirmation
Bishop Pivarunas confers the Sacrament of Confirmation when he visits Mount St. Michael at the end of May or early June. (It may also be administered at other times when he visits in more urgent cases.) The Catholic faithful are reminded of their obligation to receive this sacrament if they are not yet confirmed.
Stipends are not payment for spiritual benefits received, but are an offering of support for the priest who performs a sacramental rite or ceremony. The customary stipends are as follows: Weddings – $100, Baptisms – $25, Mass for your intentions – $20 The backlog for Masses is sometimes 3 months, so please be patient! If the backlog becomes too great, some of them will be sent to other traditional Catholic priests to offer. Please understand that sometimes this happens.
