ELIGIBILITY CERTIFICATES FOR BAPTISM & CONFIRMATION are issued ONLY to registered parishioners who attend Mass regularly, support the parish and, if married, are in a valid Catholic marriage.
The Sacrament of Baptism will be administered the FOURTH SUNDAY of the month at 11:15 AM. Please call the rectory to schedule a date. Baptism Preparation Classes are held on the Wednesday before the third Sunday of the month @Sacred Heart Parish Center for parents; call Sacred Heart to schedule the class. Godparents must be practicing Catholics: i.e. registered in a parish, practicing the faith, and able to obtain a letter of eligibility from the pastor of that parish. There are NO exceptions.
Couples should schedule a meeting with the parish priest as soon as they are engaged to marry. This should be NO less than 9-12 months before the planned wedding date. After meeting with the priest, the couple must contact the Office of Marriage and Family Life Formation at 610-289-8900 x221 to register for the FOCCUS inventory. This survey is to be taken online within two weeks after meeting with the priest. The survey is designed to help couples learn more about their unique relationship and to facilitate open and honest communication between the couple. After discussing FOCCUS with the priest, the couple should register online for marriage preparation classes. These classes must be taken at least six months prior to the wedding date. Please see the website for the schedule. Once the prep classes are complete, there are 2 or 3 additional meetings with the priest.
