Pastor's Corner
The Sacraments


Since I arrived on the beautiful campus of St. Cornelius, I have tried to share my wisdom each week through published articles printed in the Weekly Bulletin.

The positive feedback provides me with the nourishment to continue - and so I shall.

Sacramental Preparation
Sacramental Preparation for Adults

Adults desiring the Sacraments of Initiation should begin the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).  Whether you are seeking Confirmation or require all of the Sacraments of Initiation, contact the Parish Life Center office for more information.


Sacramental Preparation for Children

Children prepare for their First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation through instruction at St. Cornelius School or the Parish Religious Education Program (PREP).

First Penance and First Holy Communion usually take place during 2nd grade.

Confirmation now takes place during the fall of 8th grade.
