SACRAMENTS

Christ's work on earth is made visible in the Sacraments. We as a parish community celebrate the grace that Christ gives to us through the Sacraments.

Sacrament of Baptism, Eucharist (First Communion), and Confirmation
For children: Baptisms are celebrated the second and third Sundays of the month at 12:30pm, following the 11am Mass. Parents need to be registered active parishioners prior to arranging the baptism at St. Alphonsus. If this is a first-born child, the parents are required to attend a "Pre-Baptism" class. Both sponsors should be adults and one an active practicing Catholic. The other sponsor need not be Catholic but needs to be an active practicing member in their church. A sponsor's role is to help the baptized live in this world in such a way as to always give the greater glory to God. Call the Office Center at (630) 257-2414 a few months in advance to make arrangements.

In order to receive First Communion, students must be enrolled in either St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School or our Religious Education program. First Communion is usually made in 2nd grade and Confirmation is typically celebrated in 8th grade. Please call the school at (630) 783-2220 or the Religious Education Office at (630) 257-2371 for more details.

For adults: Baptisms are celebrated with the other Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and Confirmation) during the Easter Vigil. A process of formation in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is required prior to the Easter Vigil. Please call the Office Center at (630) 257-2414 to inquire about the RCIA program.

Sacrament of Reconciliation
Saturdays from 3 to 3:30pm prior to the Vigil Mass, or by appointment. See specific details in the bulletin about the Tri-Parish Communal Reconciliation during Lent and Advent.

Sacrament of Matrimony
The bride or groom must be a registered, active parishioner of St. Alphonsus FOR A MINIMUM OF SIX MONTHS in order to schedule a wedding date.

If either party has been previously married, the wedding may not be scheduled in Church without first speaking with the pastor and unless all Chicago Archdiocesan requirements are met. The wedding date with the Church is to be scheduled PRIOR to contracting dates with a reception hall.

Weddings are scheduled on Fridays at 4pm, Saturdays at 11am (wedding ceremony), or Saturdays at 1pm (wedding Mass and ceremony). Weddings will not be scheduled on a Sunday. To schedule a wedding, contact the Office Center at (630) 257-2414 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9am and 4pm.

Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick
Please contact the Office Center at (630) 257-2414 to make arrangements.
