Sacraments

Baptism 

Before starting his public ministry, Christ submitted himself to the baptism given by John the Baptist. The waters did not purify him; he cleansed the waters. Christ's immersion in the water is a sign of the need to die to ourselves and to do God's will. By commanding his disciples to baptize all nations, he established the means by which people would die to sin—Original and actual—and begin to live a new life with God

The more we live in contact with Jesus in the reality of our Baptism, the more Heaven will open above us

—Pope Benedict XVI

Commitment and preparation are necessary before receiving the Sacrament of Baptism into the Catholic Church. Therefore, it is required by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and Annunciation, that parishioners and non-parishioners meet with our Pastor to gain a clear understanding of your commitment and obligations before receiving this Sacrament

Matrimony 

Sacred Scripture begins with the creation and union of man and woman (—Gen 1:27) and ends with “the wedding feast of the Lamb” (—Rev 19:7, 9). Scripture often refers to marriage, its origin and purpose, the meaning God gave to it, and its renewal in the covenant made by Jesus with his Church

Marriage Preparation is required for men and women prior to receiving the Sacrament of Matrimony
