The Sacraments

The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation or Chrismation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.

Sacraments are "powers that comes forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are "the masterworks of God" in the new and everlasting covenant. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1113 & 1116

To find out how you can receive and prepare for the sacraments, please call our parish office at 586-778-5100.

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213 Please contact the parish office for available dates and times to meet with the pastor and for the dates of Baptism Sundays.

Baptism

Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1422 Confession Times Saturday  3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. Daily         Half hour before Mass

Reconciliation 

The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1322 & 1323 First Eucharist is held in May for the Second Grade students of St. Isaac Jogues School and Faith Formation. All others should contact the Parish Office to enroll in the R.C.I.A. program.

Eucharist

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the Sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation, whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285 The Eighth Grade students of St. Isaac Jogues School and Faith Formation program receive the sacrament in the spring. Adults who have yet to be confirmed should contact the Parish Office for more information about receiving the sacrament.

Confirmation

The Anointing of the Sick "is not a sacrament for those only who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for him to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived. If a sick person who received this anointing recovers his health, he can in the case of another grave illness receive this sacrament again. If during the same illness the person's condition becomes more serious, the sacrament may be repeated. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for the elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1514-1515 If you or a loved one is in need of the Anointing of the Sick, please contact the parish office.

Anointing of the Sick

The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1601 All couples wishing to be married at St. Isaac Jogues Church should schedule an appointment with the deacon at least six months in advance of your desired wedding date.

Matrimony

Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate. -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1536   The Archdiocese of Detroit holds Discernment Evenings and Weekends throughout the year at Sacred Heart Major Seminary and other locations.
