Mission       Statement

The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. In order to live life fully we celebrate the sacraments.

  • BAPTISM: In preparation for their child's initiation into the Church, parents are required to meet with the Pastoral Associate or to attend a group Baptism Catechesis program prior to the Baptism date. Baptisms for infants and children under age 7 are celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 1:00 PM unless otherwise decided. Please contact the rectory at least 4 weeks in advance to schedule your child's Baptism.
  • FIRST HOLY EUCHARIST: First Communion is scheduled each spring for children who are enrolled and will have completed 2 years in our religious education program.
  • FIRST RECONCILIATION: This Sacrament is scheduled each December for children who are enrolled in their second year of Religious Education.
  • RECONCILIATION: Anyone wishing to receive this sacrament may do so on Saturday from 3:15-3:45 or by appointment in Candia. In Chester the priest is available before the Mass between 5:15 and 5:30p.m. The Reconciliation Room is at the rear of the church in Candia.
  • CONFIRMATION: This sacrament is available to H.S. students who have completed two years in our parish Confirmation program. It is usually celebrated in the Spring time during the Easter season.
  • MARRIAGE: Couples planning to receive this sacrament must call the rectory at least six months in advance to schedule an interview.  Both churches are available for weddings.  Engaged couples have the opportunity to participate in several marriage perparation programs offered by the Catholic Church in our local area.

  • ANOINTING OF THE SICK: Please do not hesitate to contact the parish office to inform us if someone is ill, homebound or dying.
