  "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded of you."  (Matthew 28:19-20)

Baptism is the beginning of our faith and our gateway into the Church.  It is the first of three Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation and Eucharist being the other two).  Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.

To have a child baptized at St. Gregory's, please complete the Baptism Registration Form and bring it to the parish office.  If this is the first child to be baptized, parents will be required to take an Introduction to Baptism class.  For those baptizing a third or greater child, parents have the opportunity to have their child baptized by Archbishop Naumann.  For more information on this opportunity go to


  "This is my body which is given for you:  do this in remembrance of me."  (Luke 22:19)

The Eucharist is one of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism and Confirmation being the other two).  The Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ.  As Catholics, we truly believe the Eucharist is the source of the Christian life.

"The Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is at the heart of the Church's life".  (Catechism of the Catholic Church)  Mass times are:  Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday at 7:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.


  "Confession is an act of honesty and courage - an act of entrusting ourselves, beyond sin, to the mercy of a loving and forgiving God."  (St. Pope John Paul II)

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, through God's mercy and forgiveness, the sinner is reconciled with God and also with the Church, Christ's Body, which is wounded by sin".  (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

Confessions are heard from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. every Saturday or by appointment.


  "The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you."  (John 14:26)

The Sacrament of Confirmation is the last of the Sacraments of Initiation.  Through this sacrament, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church as witnesses of Christ through word and deed, equipping them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church.

At St. Gregory's, we offer the Sacrament of Confirmation for our youth once every two years, after a year-long period of preparation.  For more details about our Confirmation program, please contact the parish office.


  "Together may you follow the way of love as Christ loved you."  (Ephesians 5:2)

We look forward to preparing you for one of the most wonderful experiences of human life, "Celebrating your love in marriage and God's presence in your lives."  Your wedding will be part of a long tradition of weddings celebrated at St. Gregory's.

Engaged couples must begin the marriage preparation process at least six months prior to the intended wedding date.  During this time, the couple will complete the necessary paperwork and fulfill all marriage preparation requirements.  Please contact the parish office to begin your preparations.

Anointing of the Sick

  "Is anyone among you sick?  He should summon the presbyters of the Church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord."  (James 5:14)

Through the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, Christ offers comfort and strength to persons who are suffering from a serious illness or near death.  In this Sacrament of Healing, recipients are able to pray for healing of the body in addition to the spiritual healing of the soul that comes with the forgiveness of sins.

If you or a loved one is in need of this Sacrament, please contact the parish office.  In case of an emergency, call the Rectory at 785-562-2989.
