For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. - Galatians 3:27


And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

To schedule Baptism for both infants and those seeking their First Baptism of any age, please call and schedule an appointment with Fr. Demetrio Penascoza or come by the Parish Center for more information.

Holy Communion

So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.

Holy Communion is offered at all Masses; Eucharistic Ministers can also come to those at home who are ill if scheduled in advance.  First Holy Communion Classes are available starting in 2nd grade. Call the Parish Center for more information.  

Holy Matrimony

He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Couples who wish to prepare for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony in the Catholic Church can speak with the pastor and make an appointment or come by the Parish Office to discuss.  


And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

Reconciliation is offered every Saturday before Mass at 4:00 PM, or by appointment with the pastor.  Call or come by the Parish Center to make an appointment or for more information.


If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him,because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

Annointing of the Sick

Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.

Annointing of the sick can be arranged by appointment via phone or following any Mass on our calendar.  Please call the Parish Office for more information.
