Sacraments

Sacrament of Baptism

     Please contact the parish office in order to complete a baptism registration form or you can download the form here.  If this is your first child to be baptized, there will be a baptism class which the parents must attend.   If the person to be baptized is an adult, then there will be a period of preparation (known as "RCIA" or the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) in order to prepare the person for full entry into the Church.  Again, please call the office for more information.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

     Confessions are heard every Saturday at 11 am at St. Christopher's (Nisswa) and at 4 pm at St. Alice (Pequot Lakes). Confessions are also heard after the 10:30 mass at Our Lady of Lourdes (Pine River) every Sunday.  During the week confessions are heard every Wednesday evening from 5:30 - 7 at St. Alice.  Fr.  Mike is also available by appointment.  

Sacrament of Matrimony

     Please contact the office about a year in advance of your planned wedding date.  No date can be set until the first meeting with the pastor is completed.  There will be several meetings with the couple before their wedding in order to prepare them for this great sacrament and for their life together.  Please note that this sacrament is only available to our parishioners.  

Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

     This powerful sacrament are for those who are close to death and seek the Church's sacramental intercession; for those who are preparing for serious surgery and all those who suffer from chronic diseases.  Once again please contact the office to arrange a time to be anointed.
