The Sacraments of Initiation:
Baptism, confirmation and Holy Communion are the sacraments of initiation because our life as Christians depends upon them.
- The Sacrament of Baptism
- The Sacrament of Confirmation
- The Sacrament of Holy Communion
Sacraments at the Service of Communion:
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church there are two sacraments of communion directed towards the salvation of others: priesthood and marriage.
- The Sacrament of Marriage
- The Sacrament of Holy Orders
The Sacraments of Healing:
Because He forgives sin and heals sickness, we rightly call Jesus the Divine Physician. Rejoicing and giving thanks, the Church continues the Lord’s work of forgiving and healing through the sacraments of reconciliation and anointing of the sick.
- The Sacrament of Reconciliation
- The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick

Risen Christ children prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation as late high school students, with the rite being celebrated as needed. Candidates are enrolled in the Religious Formation program. Contact Fr. Stan Rog, 752-4219.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA):
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process of inquiring, faith-sharing, instruction, and liturgy for those who seek to become Catholics. All who are interested in inquiring about the Catholic faith are welcome. Contact Fr. Stan Rog, 752-4219.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC):
The process of initiation is adapted to meet the needs of unbaptized children or children who have been baptized but have had no formation in the faith. These are children of catechetical age, who have attained the age of reason and are capable of receiving and nurturing a personal faith. Contact Heidi Durbin, 752-4219.

Preparing for marriage is preparing for the rest of your life! Couples who plan to marry in the Diocese of Helena must contact the parish no less than six months before the proposed wedding date. Every effort will be made to accommodate the couples’ plans. However, the date of the wedding will not be confirmed until after the initial stages of the preparation have been completed.
