Parish Membership

July 2, 2017


 Being a member of the church begins with Baptism.  Becoming a member of a Catholic parish begins with registration.  From time to time, I am asked to baptize the child of a family that is not registered here.  If they are registered in another parish, locally or many states away, I am required by Church law to have the permission of their proper pastor, that is, the pastor of the parish where they are registered, to celebrate that sacrament.  The same is true for the sacrament of marriage.    The parish where you were baptized is your “church of record” - it is the place where all your sacramental data will be recorded.  For example, if we confirm a person here who was baptized at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in the city of Ewa, Oahu, Hawaii in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Honolulu, we will send a notice of that confirmation to them and they will record it in their sacramental register.  The parish where you are registered is the place where you worship, where you offer your time, talent, and treasure to God and others, and where you fed with the Eucharist and taught through the Gospels.  Some think it mildly intrusive that we ask people who attend here to register, but that information is, of course, private.  We don’t sell our registration lists to anyone, either.   If you’re not already registered, please do so soon.  In the narthex there are green registration forms, or you can call Von in the office (478-788-9820) and he will be happy to send you one.

Many Thanks — Father David
