Baptism

Baptism is an important event in the life of a child or adult being baptized, as well as for that person's family, and the community that surrounds that child or adult. Baptism is the first sacrament for a Catholic. It is through Baptism that the Holy Ghost comes into our souls, allowing us to receive forgiveness, eliminating original sin. The Holy Ghost remains as a loving presence to protect us and welcome us into the Kingdom of the Lord.
Requests for Baptism should be made at least two months prior by calling the Holy Cross Parish of Rosemère at 450-621-2150.
Joe and Diane Bellizzi are parishioners of Holy Cross Parish who give of their time, helping the individual or the individual's family to prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism.

 
 

Holy Communion

Our program's aim is to provide your child with an understanding and preparation to receive his/her sacrament, that is supported by your family's regular attendance at mass, and making Christ a part of your family's everyday life. Through Communion children will receive the body and blood of Christ and in Reconciliation (confession), children will receive the grace of God through forgiveness.
We believe that it is important for the children preparing to make their sacrament be it Holy Communion, or Reconciliation, to be well supported by their family and community. It is for this reason that we ask for children and their families to attend our regular Sunday mass during their preparation so that they have the opportunity to see and meet the people of the parish and become familiar with the traditions and procedures of the mass, and of our parish in particular. Many of the children join our youth choir, youth group, become altar servers, liturgical dancers, or lectors! Our parish has come alive with so many young people participating in our Sunday liturgy and community events!

Confession

Please contact the parish manager to find out about the schedule for confessions.

 
 

Matrimony

Matrimony is another term for marriage, but it is not simply a synonym. As Fr. John Hardon notes in his Modern Catholic Dictionary, matrimony "refers more to the relationship between husband and wife than to the ceremony or the state of marriage." That is why, strictly speaking, the Sacrament of Marriage is the Sacrament of Matrimony. Besides being used for the sacrament, the term is still widely used in legal references to marriage.
Requests for marriage services must be made at least six months to a year prior to the requested date. Please contact the Parish Centre at 450-621-2150.

 
 

Holy Orders - Ordination

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ's priesthood, which He bestowed upon His Apostles; thus, the Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the Sacrament of Holy Orders as "the sacrament of apostolic ministry."
"Ordination" comes from the Latin word ordinatio, which means to incorporate someone into an order. In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, a man is incorporated into the priesthood of Christ, at one of three levels: the episcopate, the priesthood, or the diaconate.

 
 

Last Rights - Extreme Unction

Definition: Last Rites is another term, very common inpast centuries but rarely used today, for one of the seven sacraments, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, which is administered both to the dying and to those who are gravely ill or are about to undergo a serious operation, for the recovery of their health and for spiritual strength.
The sacrament was called last rites because it was (at least until recent years) usually administered when the person receiving the sacrament was in grave danger of dying. The term is sometimes more broadly used to refer to the reception of all of the Last Sacraments—Confession, Holy Communion, and the Anointing of the Sick.
