Sacraments

BAPTISM

We aim to be as welcoming and formative as possible in preparing for and celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism. Deacon Torres and Msgr. Kerrigan lead the baptismal preparation sessions for parents and godparents prior to the sacramental celebration. The process for your infant starts with an inquiry to Rocio Ramos at the parish center, or by submitting the Baptism Information Form, which can be downloaded and printed here. For information about Baptism, contact Rocio Ramos or call her at 732-545-1681, extension 102.  We usually celebrate Baptism communally, twice monthly on Saturday afternoons, or during a Sunday Mass, or, rarely, a liturgy for a single family.

RECONCILIATION

The great majority of our parishioners who participate in the Sacrament of Reconcilation at the parish do so during the monthly and seasonal Reconciliation Services rotated among our three churches. Priests are also available by appointment at the parish center, We also publish the times and sites for area celebrations of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. At Holy Family's founding in 2014, we are blessed to have priests who can celebrate the sacrament in English, Hungarian, Polish, Slovak and Spanish.

HOLY EUCHARIST

If you or a family member is homebound or hospitalized and would like to be visited by a Eucharistic minister, or if you need to receive low-gluten hosts, please contact Joseph Szabo.

ANOINTING

Contact Rocio Ramos at the parish center to arrange to be anointed in the church before surgery or to be visited at home when ill. At least once a year we offer the Sacrament in a communal setting.
