If you were baptized Catholic and received Eucharist, but never received Confirmation, we can help you to receive Confirmation! Please CLICK HERE to contact Deacon Phil electronically or call 978.663.8816 for more information about Adult Confirmation.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on Sundays across the Churches of St. Matthew the Evangelist Parish. Please call the Parish Office to schedule your child’s Baptism (978.663.8816)
Parents are expected to attend a 30-40 minute meeting with either a staff member prior to the baptism. This meeting serves as baptism preparation. We hope that any questions concerning your child’s baptism and your role as parents will be addressed.
Please contact your Parish Office to register for your child’s Baptism. You will receive a follow-up phone call or email with regards to setting up the parent meeting.
Please note: In order for a Baptized Catholic to be a Godparent, that Catholic must also be Confirmed.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by one of the Bishops of the Archdiocese, usually in the Spring. All Youth who have completed the requirements of our Religious Education program are eligible. Please CLICK HERE to contact the BCRE office (or 978.667.3733) for specific dates for Confirmation.
