Confirmation

 

The age for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation is seemingly

falling from age 16 to the younger age of 10-12. We need

to have a complete list of young people in the Parish in this age

bracket. We will probably, this year, still focus on teens for the

Sacrament. Please, all families with children 10-16 submit names

and information to email olm@olm-parish.com (subject line: Confirmation).

 

Adult Confirmation

 

Baptized Catholics in need of the Sacrament of Confirmation.

(Identify by email)

Baptism (Infant to under age 7)

 

Requirements: Registered Parishioners, practicing the Catholic

Faith (at least one parent) -- Godparents must be Baptized,

Confirmed and Practicing. Procedure: Identify yourself  (email) and fill

out a Baptism Registration Form. Currently, the parents/Godparents

are given a self-preparation pact including a DVD. After

this is completed, parents and Godparents meet with Father Jim.

If Godparents are out-of-town, they need to complete Preparation

that is provided in their local area. The Baptism itself can

take place at any time -- probably outside of Mass during the

Covid restriction. (--The 11:00 a.m. time slot on Sunday morning

works well.)

Requirements:

● For babies and children less than 7 years of age. (Children 7 years and older must be enrolled in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC)).

● The family must be registered members of the Parish either Our Lady of the Meadows or Holy Rosary.

● A firm commitment by parents to raise their children in the Catholic faith to the best of their ability.

● A copy of the baby’s birth certificate.

● Attend a baptism preparation session within the last two years. Qualifications of Godparents:

● An understanding of the role of godparent.

● Be at least 16 years of age, fully initiated into the Catholic Church -- Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation and a participating member of a Catholic parish.

● Certification from godparents’ parish of eligibility to be sponsors is required.

Please call the office at 561-3580 to register..

First Communion

The Age of Reason/seven years of age/2nd Grade are typical

for the time of First Communion. If you have a child who is age

qualified, email olm@olm-parish.com (subject line: First Communion)

with full information. We will either have a Class on

Sunday mornings or, if candidates are few, we will prepare a

preparation kit for home-based class with a few sessions possible

of a workshop style.

 

If you have questions, call the office at 561-3580.

First Confession

 

Ordinarily, by Canon Law and Diocesan Policy, First Confession

occurs before First Communion. Preparation for First Confession

will be intertwined with Preparation for First Communion.

If there are older children in need of First Sacraments, submit

their names so they can be prepared -- perhaps in a separate

fashion.
