The Sacraments

St. Sebastian offers three paths to Baptism, based on the age of the person being baptized.

  • For infants, parents take a special Baptism class.
  • Children seeking Baptism may participate in special classes to help prepare them for the sacrament.
  • Adults may participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). Some adults may not be completely ready for Baptism but have important questions about the church and about God. We are happy to talk with you about your spiritual journey.

There has been a change to our Baptism policy, effective January of 2020. Click here to download our Baptism policy along with an additional sponsor form.

Understandably, funerals often happen suddenly and offer little preparation time. St. Sebastian is prepared for this and is committed to supporting and consoling those grieving the loss of a loved one. Many liturgical options exist to provide spiritual healing in the family’s time of need.

A memorial Mass also is common, especially when the deceased lived in another state and had a funeral in their place of residence. A memorial Mass would not have the casket or ashes present since the funeral already occurred, and could be done at most any time – even several weeks or months later.

If you or a loved one would like to pre-plan a funeral, materials and staff are available to assist you.
