The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence. That’s what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God’s grace.

Baptism

First Communion (Eucharist)

Confirmation

Reconciliation

Marriage

Holy Orders

Anointing of the Sick

    To Whom it may concern,
    I am seeking information pertaining to the use of your church for the celebration of my son’s First Holy Communion. I have seen the exterior of your beautiful church on many visits to the area. We live in the city of Whittier and are members of St. Hilary parish in Pico Rivera. Nevertheless, I would like for my son to receive the Holy Eucharist in the same way that he was Baptized, that being in an individual ceremony in the Extraordinary Form. I know a Norbertine priest who is trained to celebrate the Tridentine mass and can acquire altar servers also trained as such if need be.The aforementioned priest is a member of the community of St. Michaels Abbey in Silverado Canyon,Ca. He baptized my son in 2009. I am simply requesting the use of your gorgeous church and perhaps your organist for the service. Additionally, if the altar could be set “Ad Orientem” with altar cruicifix and candles and the use of your finest gold chalice and paten set. Since I would like for this to be a High Mass a deacon will be required. If you have one available that would also be wonderful.
    I am sure that the priest who will say the mass can provide the 1962 Missale Romanum and I intend to furnish his vestments.
    If you would be amenable to allowing us to have our son’s sacrament performed in your church in the aforementioned way, I would be willing to pay whatever you charge for out of parish wedding masses at that highest rate and a stipend to your deacon in addition to any other fees you should deem appropriate. I simply wish to see this most holy moment in my son’s life be conducted in the most solemn and reverent manner possible. Sadly, I do not feel that will happen if he is forced to make his first communion en masse with the rest of his class. He is currently in first grade and this will not be until April/May of 2016. Notwithstanding, since there are several matters that need to be addressed prior to this event, I am trying to give as much notice as possible. Please notify me if you can and/or would consider accommodating these requests. Thank you in advance.
    Kindest regards,
    Peter S. Alamillo III
