Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! We
are always happy to welcome new
members into the Body of Christ. Parents requesting baptism
for their children should have them
baptized within a few weeks of birth. While Baptism is normally
celebrated for those registered with
the parish and attending Mass weekly and on all required Holy
Days, good people sometimes end up
falling short of the ideal. We will work with an sincere persons
needing baptism for either their baby,
older children, or even themselves. We also consider it a
great privilege to prepare any adult
wishing to be baptized to receive Baptism. Simply contact
the Rectory—ask for Fr. Rick, and he will
personally take care of your needs.
Congratulations on getting engaged! We will do all
we can to make your wedding
day beautiful, memorable, and holy! Since it is God’s
Will and plan for you to have a long and
happy marriage, the Buffalo Diocese asks that engaged couples
contact the parish Priests at least six
(6) months prior to their planned wedding date. Marriage preparation
consists in meeting with the
Pastor to schedule your wedding date and begin the preparation
process. St. Josaphat’s offers many
options of marriage preparation for those with impossible
work and school schedules. Our Pastor
can help you to select one of the many options you have for
preparing for marriage. Since the use of
artificial contraception (“birth control”) is
a mortal sin, St. Josaphat Parish requires all couples
preparing for marriage to complete a Natural Family Planning
(NFP) course offered at one of our
local Catholic Hospitals. We understand that sometimes good
people who may not have been faithful
in Mass attendance or the practice of the Faith realize that
they want to be married in the Church. If
they are sincere enough to return to Mass and the practice
of the faith as they prepare for marriage—
they will be welcomed with open arms. Call the Rectory to
make an appointment with our Pastor!
EDUCATION CLASSES: Grades 1–5 meet from 9:00am—10:00am
Grades 6—Confirmation meet from 6:30—7:30pm on
Tuesday evenings. Each of our catechists has
been trained and certified with all protocols established
by the Dallas Charter and the mandated
diocesan Virtus ® and Protecting God’s Children
Programs. Our Religious Ed. Program strongly
emphasizes what we believe (the Creed), how we are to live
(The Commandments of God and
Precepts of the Church), how to live the Sacramental life
(Sacraments), and the life of Prayer.
Confirmation is taught by the Pastor. We are also prepared
to provide Religious Education and
Formation to Special Needs Children—whether Parishioners
or not! Call our Religious Ed. Office
REGISTER OR LEAVE: We are always happy to welcome
new parishioners! To register,
please call the Rectory to register and receive your contribution
envelopes! If you are moving or
leaving the parish, please contact us to let us know, so that
we can transfer your records to your new
CATHOLIC: Your reception into the Catholic Church
is geared to your special
needs and circumstances. For those who seek Baptism a complete
preparation for Baptism and
entrance into the Church is available. Many Protestant Baptisms
are recognized by the Catholic
Church, so formation for you is geared to completing the union
you already share with us by your
baptism into Christ. Your preparation need not be as long
as one preparing for Baptism, and so, we
focus more on welcoming you as a fellow brother or sister
in Christ and orientating you to life in the
Church. Sometimes someone baptized Catholic needs to “catch
up” on their Sacraments—if so,
call us for an extremely simple procedure of getting you prepared!
We try to do this with the least
amount of difficulties for you. Even if you’re scared,
shy, or feel uncomfortable—we’ll make you
feel welcome and you’ll never regret inquiring into
the Faith! There’s an entire parish and priest
eager to meet and help you!
