RECEIVING THE SACRAMENTS AT ST. MARY’S:

Baptism:
Please call the pastor to arrange for a baptismal instruction (of first child) and to schedule a baptism.


Marriage:
The Diocese of Lincoln asks couples to participate in a program of preparation, which lasts from 4-6 months. Before setting a wedding date, the couple needs to contact the parish 6-12 months before the wedding date and begin the program of preparation with one of the priests.


Holy Communion and Anointing of the Sick:
People who are home-bound, even temporarily, are encouraged to call the rectory to arrange for a visit from one of the priests; shut-ins are ordinarily visited on the First Friday of the month.

Holy Order/Religious Life:
Please see one of the priests for spiritual guidance in discerning whether God may be calling you to serve in one of these ways. As always, pray for vocations—for those already studying for the priesthood and religious life as well as for those God is calling.
