Why Register as a Parishioner?

WHY REGISTER?
Every Catholic should be registered in a parish. Beside the active support and involvement that the registration enables, the parish registration is also a mandatory condition for many sacraments including Baptism and Matrimony. *It is therefore important to register at your local parish as soon as you start worshiping there regularly.
 You may request verification letters to sponsor individuals for sacraments,
receive sacraments yourself or your child (i.e. marriage, baptism).
 You will receive end-of-the-year tax contribution statements.
 The Archdiocese will know that our parish has a healthy base of registered,
supportive parishioners.

To register in the parish, please visit the Rectory or print out the

Parish-Registration-Form

on our website, fill it out and return it to the rectory.

*You are not automatically registered if you made your Sacraments here as a child or went to the school.
