St. Therese Catholic Church

Sacraments

 

Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is the entrance into the life of God.  Whether baptized as infants or adults, Baptism cleanses us from original sin, makes us members of the Church, and adopted children of God.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, or Confession, reconciles the sinner to God and the Church through God’s unconditional mercy and forgiveness. Reconciliation is available every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Sacrament of Eucharist

The Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is the heart of the Church’s life.  Our celebration of the Eucharist is both a sacrifice and a meal.  Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist: body, blood, soul, and divinity. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.

Communion for the home bound:  Call the Parish office at 952-473-4422

Sacrament of Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation deepens our baptismal gifts and equips us for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. In Confirmation we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Sacrament of Marriage

The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that joins one man and one woman totally to each other in complete self-gift. Marriage is a sacred covenant and lifelong commitment that both unites and leads to new life.

Contact Person: Geri Korman, 952-473-4422.

 


Sacrament of Holy Orders

In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the man being ordained by the bishop is given the grace and spiritual power to sanctify others through the administration of the sacraments.
