Sacraments of Catholic Faith


We welcome infants into our parish community through the sacrament of Baptism, an expression of the parents’ commitment to the Faith and a sign of God’s love and care for the child. Call to Celebrate: Baptism is a program of welcome, connection and conversion and consists of two 2-hour sessions. It is preferable to attend prior to the birth of your child. Registration is required. Contact the church office to register and see Deacon Pat with any questions.


First Reconciliation (Penance) is part of Religious Formation classes for children in the second grade. Preparation begins in September.

Confessions are heard: St. Joseph: Saturdays 3:00-3:30pm or by appointment.

Our Lady of the Lakes: Sundays 8:00-8:15am; Fridays after 9am Mass or by appointment.


Preparation for First Eucharist (Communion) is part of Religious Formation classes for children in the second grade. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a prerequisite. Ministers of Communion (Eucharistic Ministers) undergo an application process and training. Contact Deacon Pat or Kelli Ingham at 715-268-4450 for more information.


Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment. It is part of Religious Formation classes for youth in the 11th and 12th grades and also part of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Activities run throughout the year.


Preparation is required at least 6 months prior to the wedding. Please call the church as soon as possible after your engagement to arrange a meeting.

Anointing of the Sick

Formerly “Last Rites,” anointing is a ritual of healing, not only for physical sickness, but mental and spiritual health as well. If you or someone in your family is hospitalized and would like to receive communion or anointing, please call the parish office. Due to patient privacy laws, no one can visit unless the patient or family requests it.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Is someone you know considering becoming a Catholic? Or has the Holy Spirit been prompting you, a baptized Catholic, to complete your initiation into the Church by receiving the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation? Then RCIA may be just what you’re seeking. Classes begin in the fall with an introductory session and end at the Easter Vigil with the opportunity for First Eucharist, to confirm your faith and deepen your baptismal commitment.
