Baptism

We celebrate the sacrament of baptism with infants by appointment.  A preparation session is required if this is a couple’s first child or if it has been more than three years since the last child was baptized.  For older children and adults we have a process of initiation, which leads to the celebration of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.  Please contact the Parish Office to make arrangements (262-275-2480).

Reconciliation

Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. in the parents’ room

The sacrament of reconciliation is celebrated on Saturday mornings during the year.  In addition, a communal service is celebrated during both the Advent and the Lenten Seasons.  The sacrament can also be celebrated individually by appointment.  Preparation of children (third grade and older) to understand and celebrate the sacrament occurs during the fall and culminates with a celebration of the sacrament during Advent.

Eucharist

This sacrament is celebrated every weekend by the community as well as on most weekdays.  Children who are at least in the third grade prepare to receive the Body and Blood of Christ for the first time in communion with the rest of the church during the Easter Season.

Confirmation

Confirmation is celebrated once a year.  Formation is open to all youth who are juniors in high school.  Preparation for celebrating this sacrament goes from Fall until Spring.  Those Catholics who are beyond high school are prepared for this sacrament through the adult confirmation program.
