Saint Benedict has many sacraments to serve the parish, its parishioners, and our community. Please contact our parish office at 859.431.5607 for any of the sacraments listed below.
Anointing of the Sick Is celebrated for those in our parish who are ill. If you would like to receive this Sacrament, please contact the rectory at 431.5607
Baptism Begins a person's initiation into the life of the Church. The parish provides a preparation class for "first-time" parents. Please contact the rectory in advance of the birth of your child to prepare for the baptism of your child. Adults are initiated into the life of the Church through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This process usually begins in the fall. Contact the rectory for further information.
Confirmation is celebrated after a period of preparation, usually held in the 7th or 8th grade. The Bishop of Covington, or his designee, celebrates this Sacrament of Initiation, usually every other year.
Holy Communion is brought to our parishioners who are unable to attend Mass (short-term and long-term). They are asked to contact the rectory. First Communion is normally celebrated on the first Sunday of May at the 10:00 Mass. Usually young parishioners are prepared for this Sacrament in the second grade.
Holy Orders If you know someone who may be interested in living his life as a deacon or priest, please contact the pastor. A candidate for Holy Orders should show a concern for others, and possibly already be involved in the life and ministry of the Church.
Marriage Those wishing to celebrate this Sacrament are asked to contact the rectory at least 9 months in advance of the wedding date. It is recommended that a wedding occur in the church where a person is registered and attends Mass regularly.
Penance 30 minutes before weekend Mass or by appointment.
