Celebrating the Sacraments

Sacraments provide a process by which adults and children are welcomed into the sacramental life of the Church.

Guided by the Holy Spirit, the Church recognizes the existence of seven sacraments. They are the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist), the Sacraments of Healing (Reconciliation and the Anointing of the Sick), and the Sacraments at the Service of Communion (Marriage and Holy Orders). Through the sacraments, God shares His holiness with us so that we, in turn, can make the world holier.


Baptism, the first of seven sacraments, brings us into a new life with Christ. It is the way in which original sin is removed and how a person becomes a member of the Catholic Church. Baptisms are available during Mass or privately at an arranged time.



The Sacrament of Confirmation is the third of the Sacraments of Initiation and is traditionally celebrated following Baptism & First Eucharist. Our Confirmation classes are a two-year program offered to students starting in ninth grade and concluding in the spring of tenth grade with the reception of the sacrament.


The Eucharist is a part of every Mass. For weekly Mass times visit the Worship page.

Low Gluten Altar Breads, approved for the Eucharistic Liturgy by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, are available by request. If you need to receive a low-gluten host, please inform the Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion as you approach to receive (contains less than 0.1% gluten).


Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Reconciliation, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. LEARN MORE

Jesus came to heal the whole person, body and soul. When the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given, the primary effect is a spiritual healing by which the person receives the Holy Spirit’s gift of peace and courage. The Church teaches that seniors can receive this Sacrament twice each year regardless of their health situation.

First Thursday of the Month, 6:30pm
Anointing of the Sick offered monthly after Thursday evening Mass

Private Anointing
If you or a family member are ill and want a visit or need the Sacrament of Anointing, call 952-835-7101 to schedule a visit.


The sacrament of Marriage is a public commitment between two people to love each other unconditionally and to join with Christ and the Church in a never-ending bond of pure love.

Six months to one year of preparation time is required for this sacrament. Click Here to download a pdf of our Wedding & Marriage Booklet.

Holy Orders

Ordination to the priesthood is always a call and a gift from God.
Those who seek priesthood respond generously to God’s call using the words of the prophet, “Here I am, send me” (Is 6:8). This call from God can be recognized and understood from the daily signs that disclose His will to those in charge of discerning the vocation of the candidate.
