For one reason or another, some Catholic adults who were baptized and celebrated First Communion as children never completed their initiation by celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation. Preparation sessions for Confirmation of Catholic adults can take place in conjunction with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) or at other times, as needed, depending on the size of the group.
Confirmation of Catholic adults is usually celebrated at the Easter Vigil (or at other times throughout the year, depending on circumstances). If you are interested in preparing to celebrate Confirmation as a Catholic adult (age 18 or older), please contact Sheila Murphy, Pastoral Associate.
St. Monica-St. George Parish Newman Center prepares adolescents in the 7th and 8th grades to celebrate Confirmation every other year (e.g. 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 and so on).
Sacramental preparation for Confirmation takes place during weekly PSR on Sunday mornings. Additionally, candidates and their sponsors also participate in sacramental preparation sessions as indicated on the annual PSR calendar.
Parents can register their children for PSR by printing off and filling in the form on the parish website and sending it to the parish office with the registration fee. Click on “Religious Education” under the Ministries heading on the parish’s home page.
For more information, contact Sheila Murphy, Pastoral Associate, at email@example.com.
St. Monica St. George Parish Newman Center serves many young adults who make this their parish. The priests, music director, coordinators and FOCCUS married couples make every effort to provide good planning and preparation.
Catholics who live within the parish boundaries, those who are registered here, alumni of the UC Newman Center, and young adults making this their community of faith are all welcomed to be married here.
Because of the many weddings of those who belong to this church, it is only by way of exception that other weddings can be accepted. There are limitations due to the time dedicated to each engaged couple, and the availability of dates, keeping in mind that dates need to be available to those who are members of this church.
All Catholics have a church to which they belong – the church in whose territory they reside. That church is the proper setting for celebrating sacraments.
Requests to be married here by way of exception need to be put in writing and sent to the pastor.
Marriage Preparation involves meeting with the Pastor for an initial interview. In the months preceding the marriage, our parish offers a good program for marriage preparation and wedding planning:
Planning Your Wedding sessions in November and March.
Pre-Cana or Engaged Encounter weekend is an offering of the Archdiocese.
FOCCUS is an instrument ministered by a married couple in our parish – the results of this instrument are then discussed with the married couple.
Meetings with the priest who will preside at the wedding.
Our parish also offers a program for couples married one to five years.
The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing for all those who are facing major surgery, chronic illness, or the weakness that comes with age. Please call the parish office at 513-381-6400 to request an anointing.
Communal celebrations of the sacrament are celebrated on occasion throughout the year, usually after a Sunday Mass. Watch the bulletin for announced times.
Please contact our Pastoral Associate, Sheila Murphy, to schedule a funeral.
