Baptism is the sacrament of faith, the sacrament from which we receive a new life in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit makes us new in and through the community. Through this sacrament we are initiated into God's Church.
"Baptism incorporates us into Christ and forms us into God's people. It pardons all our sins, rescues us from the power of darkness, and brings us to the dignity of adopted children, a new creation through water and the Holy Spirit." (The Rites, #1)
What do we require?
- We ask the parents of infants/young children to fill out a baptism application form and send it via email or postal mail.
- After filling out the baptism form, call the parish office at
(408) 739-8506 to schedule a meeting with a priest.
- Baptismal Preparation Classes are provided for the parents and godparents to help them with their awesome gift and responsibility to share the faith of Jesus Christ with the child God has so lovingly given to them.

Annointing of the Sick
"Is anyone among you suffering? They should pray. Is anyone in good spirits? They should sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? They should summon the presbyters of the Church, and they shall pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise them up. If they have committed any sins, they will be forgiven." - James 5: 13-15
The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing, offered to anyone experiencing serious illness, preparing for surgery, or in danger of death. It may be received more than once and the threat of death need not be imminent. Individuals may receive this sacrament upon request by contacting a priest through the Parish Office at (408)-739-8506. If you are unable to get to Church, a priest will be glad to come to you.
