The sacrament of Confirmation completes our initiation into the Catholic Church. Traditionally it was received after Baptism and before Eucharist, and these three sacraments are still regarded as the sacraments of initiation. In the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Confirmation is usually received in high school; as a cluster, St. Michael and St. Albert have made Confirmation available to students in eighth grade and higher. Please see the Confirmation webpage under Formation about Confirmation preparation and our 8th-grade Breakaway ministry, which is foundational to the sacrament.
If you are an adult Catholic who has not been confirmed, please contact Deacon Steve Dupay at 612-219-4484 about preparing for the sacrament through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing available to anyone facing serious surgery, serious illness or death, providing spiritual and sometimes physical healing. Please contact the parish office at 763-497-2745 to request an anointing. If the need is grave or urgent, do not hesitate to call the emergency line as well.
Holy Orders is the sacrament by which God, through the Church, ordains deacons, priests, and bishops to serve the Kingdom of God here on earth. If you think you may be called to the priesthood, the diaconate, or religious life, please talk with Fr. Richards or Fr. McCabe and visit the archdiocesan vocations website, www.10000vocations.org.
