Sacraments

SacramentsThe whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. (CCC 1113)

While we believe that human life is infused with the sacramental goodness of God, the Catholic Church has defined seven sacraments - instituted by and through the life of Jesus Christ. It is through the experience of the sacramental ritual that we are infused with God’s grace. The Sacraments nourish and strengthen us as they express and build up our faith.

Baptism

Communal celebrations are held several times a year. Infant Baptism Preparation Classes for parents and godparents of infants held on a regular basis. Baptisms of adults and children (age 7 and older) are celebrated in the spring. Christian Initiation sessions (RCIA) are for adults and youth. For further information contact Sondra Sciola at sondra@stjude-redmond.org.

Reconciliation

Saturdays, 3:45 pm -4:30 pm or by appointment by calling the parish office at 425-883-7685. A Parish Reconciliation Service is celebrated twice yearly in preparation for Christmas and Easter.

First Reconciliation & First Eucharist

As part of our Faith Formation program for grades 2-3, we explore the meaning of rituals, symbols, gestures, and prayers to prepare our children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.  The program is designed to touch the heart as well as the head, engaging children using story, Scripture, doctrine, and prayer. 

For children baptized in the Catholic faith and in fourth grade and above, please contact Sondra for more information.

Normally a twelve-month preparation period is required; however, parishioners may begin the scheduling process 6-10 months in advance. Please contact Fr. Johnson at frjohnson@stjude-redmond.org.
