Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church
One is freed from initial sin and welcomed into the Church.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd weekend of the month. Please contact the parish office (262-763-1500 or email@example.com) to schedule a time for your child's baptism, or to ask any questions that you might have.

For those that have not received the sacrament of reconciliation, please take the time to look over this document to prepare yourself for this sacrament.
2nd, 4th and 5th Saturdays in the Good Shepherd Chapel at 3:30 PM
or call the office to make an appointment with one of the priests.
First time one recevies the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, which is one of the central focuses of the Church.
Adults wishing to receive First Communion should sign up for our RCIA program. Children in our school and REP (Religious Education Program) are prepared for this sacrament in second grade. We want children experiencing First Eucharist to have a complete understanding of what it is they are receiving, thus preparation for First Eucharist starts the year before they are to receive the sacrament. Parents should have their children enrolled in Faith Formation classes by 1st grade. Once these children are prepared, they receive their First Communion in early May.
One receives the Holy Spirit and becomes an adult member of the Catholic Church.
Adults wishing to be Confirmed should sign up for our RCIA program. Children in our Catholic High School and REP programs are prepared for this Sacrament in eleventh grade.
