Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua),(1) 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.”(2)

QUINCEAÑERA

Quinceañeras are celebrated at St. Pius V Catholic Church in order to help teenaged girls grow in faith and a sense of gratitude to God. 

Please note:  The manner of celebrating Quinceañeras in the United States is governed by the Bendición al cumplir quince años / Order for the Blessing on the Fifteenth Birthday, approved for use by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and subsequently confirmed by the Apostolic See by decree of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (the Vatican department delegated by the Pope to supervise liturgical and devotional matters).

 

Scheduling the Quinceañera

Scheduling a Quinceañera begins with completing the “Quinceañera Registration” form and submitting it to the Parish Office, along with any required deposit (discussed below), and the necessary documents.  It is expected that all young ladies preparing for their Quinceañera have already been baptized and have received First Holy Communion. Proof of baptism and First Holy Communion will be required with the Quinceañera Registration form.

Las quinceañeras se celebran en la iglesia católica de San Pío V para ayudar a las niñas adolescentes a crecer en fe y en un sentido de gratitud a Dios.

 

NOTA:  La manera de celebrar quinceañeras en los Estados Unidos se rige por la Bendición al cumplir los quince años / Orden de Bendición en el Decimoquinto Cumpleaños, aprobada para uso por la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos de los Estados Unidos y confirmada posteriormente por la Sede Apostólica por Decreto de la Congregación para el Culto Divino y la Disciplina de los Sacramentos (el departamento del Vaticano delegado por el Papa para supervisar los asuntos litúrgicos y devocionales).

 

Programación de la Quinceañera

La programación de una quinceañera comienza con llenar el formulario de “Registro de quinceañeras” y entregarlo en la Oficina Parroquial, junto con el depósito requerido (descrito a continuación) y los documentos necesarios. Se espera que todas las jóvenes que se preparan para su quinceañera ya hayan sido bautizadas y hayan recibido la Primera Comunión. Se requerirá prueba de bautismo y Primera Comunión junto con el formulario de inscripción para la quinceañera. La celebración de la quinceañera se programa de acuerdo con las fechas del calendario de la iglesia.

Confession and Penance Services

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.”

 

Above text from Catechism of the Catholic Church – The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

 

Confessions:

Saturday: 2:30-3:30 PM
Thursday before First Fridays: 3:30-4:30 PM

Eucharist

The Holy Eucharist is one of the sacraments of initiation.

“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.’”

 

Above text from Catechism of the Catholic Church – The Sacrament of the Eucharist

Sacrament of Confirmation

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 (1). For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.”(2)

Marriage

Marriage is the blessed sacrament of becoming one and growing together in faith.

Marriage is a sacrament of the Catholic Church. Just as Jesus attended the wedding at Cana, He also attends yours.

We, the community of St. Pius V Catholic Church wish to congratulate you on your engagement and upcoming marriage. Our parish extends a warm welcome to all who choose to come here for their wedding.

The decision to marry is a commitment to one another, to the faith community of the Church and acknowledges God’s unconditional love and presence in your relationship. Because we look upon this moment in your lives with such importance, it is only natural that the preparation for this lifelong experience is one that we take seriously.

We are not permitted to perform weddings outside of the parish church.

 

What you need to know:

The first step in marriage preparation is to contact the Parish Office at least 6 months prior to the desired date of marriage.

Our parish staff will help guide you through this joyful journey with excitement and a little bit of paperwork.

Remember that during your months of preparation, you are not simply planning a wedding ceremony, but a lifetime together filled with joy, happiness, challenges, surprises, and love.

 

Validation of a Marriage

A couple who has been married through a civil ceremony and now wishes to have their marriage validated in the church to receive the Sacrament of Matrimony, need to speak with a priest before a date can be confirmed. Please call the parish office to make an appointment. (714) 522-2193

“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.”(1)

Holy Orders

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that:

“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.”

Anointing of the Sick

By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.”(1)
