Sacrament of Marriage

Marriage preparation normally begins at least six months prior to the proposed wedding date. A more extensive wedding policies document is available at the Parish Office, or by clicking HERE.

The first step is to schedule an initial interview with one of the priests. This can be done by leaving your name and contact information with the Parish Office or speaking with one of the priests after Mass.

There are several steps to the Marriage Preparation process--these will be outlined in the initial interview. The goal of each step is to help the engaged couple better comprehend what the Catholic church understands and teaches about the meaning and commitment of the Sacrament of Matrimony. Most of the preparation classes are taught by parish couples who generously share the wisdom they have gained through many years of faithful marriage.

The marriage preparation series is offered several times throughout the year to accomodate the large number of couples who choose to begin their married life here at Blessed Sacrament.


Baptism

Infants

Our Baptism Preparation Series for parents who want their children baptized is held every other month. Godparents are welcome to attend these classes as well.

This two-part class helps parents understand the implications of having their child baptized into the Catholic faith. It includes reflections on the role of the "domestic church" in the faith formation of the child, the consequent faith development on the part of the parents as they nurture their child(ren), and the meaning of the various words, gestures, and sacramentals used in the Baptism ritual. Contact the Parish Office at 206-547-3020.

Children Over Five

If your child is of catechetical age (i.e., the "age of reason") and you desire to have him or her baptized, it is expected that the child will begin a period of formal instruction in order to prepare for being welcomed into the Church at Easter. Contact the Parish Office at 206-547-3020.

Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) - This year-round weekly process is designed to facilitate inquiry into the teachings and practices of the Catholic faith for those baptized in other Christian denominations or for those who have never been baptized. After an appropriate period of inquiry, participants may choose to prepare to join the Catholic Church. The length of this period of "apprenticeships" depends upon the participant's previous faith background. Those interested may begin the inquiry process any time, attending classes on Sunday afternoons. The program is conducted by a teaching team under the supervision of the Pastor. Contact Marilyn Thornton at 206-355-6540.
