In the Sacrament of Baptism, the Church welcomes our newest and youngest members of the parish community. Parents seeking baptism for their child should contact Deacon Walt Skinner at least three months prior to the baptism, be registered members of the parish, participate in a Baptism Workshop (Please see the Parish Bulletin under "Sacrament Information" for an upcoming Baptism Workshop) and attend Mass regularly as a family. Prior to the workshop, parents need to schedule an interview with Deacon Walt. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Deacon Walt at the parish office at 407-322-3961.

The Church provides a process fro formation in the Catholic Christian way of life. This process is for unbaptized adults and children (over the age of seven). It is a gradual process inviting an individual to learn and understand the teachings of the Church. During the process, people have the opportunity to ask questions about the Church and hear the message and how Catholics live out that message.
** Adults seeking to become Roman Catholic who were baptized in another Christian denomination. do need an understanding of Catholic beliefs, the liturgical life of the Chruch, before making a commitment to the Catholic Church. Each person's situation is evaluated and his/her needs are met in an appropriate way. Adults who were baptized Catholc, but never celebrated Confirmation or First Eucharist, are invited to join us.
Celebration of the Anointing of the Sick is administered every 4th Wednesday of the month after the 8:30 am Mass. In addition, this sacrament, which celebrates God's healing power and strength, is available at any time for those who need it. Please contact the parish office to arrange to celebrate the Sacrament. Those preparing to undergo surgery or expecting a hospital stay are encouraged to call the parish office prior to hospitalization to make arrangements.
The Church teaches that the Sacrament of Marriage is a commitment of life and love which stretches through the lifetime of the couple and which must grow and develop every day. In order to prepare for this sacrament, anyone seeking to be married in the Church must contact the church office at least four months prior to the wedding. Interviews with the priest, special classes and other preparations are necessary before a couple can celebrate their marriage in Church. Additional steps are required when one of the parties is under nineteen years of age, when there has been a prior marriage, or when there is a premarital pregnancy.
