MEMBERSHIP IN OUR COMMUNITY REQUIRES THAT:

1.  You are a Parishioner of  Holy Angels if you are baptized Catholic living within the geographical boundaries designated by the Archdiocese; if not and you choose to be a parish member you must be officially registered and be known as a member who stays in communication with the parish.  This registration is the entrance and key to both the benefits and responsibilities of being a Catholic Parishioner at Holy Angels.

2.  Membership in our Parish Community enables you and your family to celebrate sacraments in our church; it also facilitates our ability to invite you to participate in the activities of the parish.

3.  Families with children benefit from official membership in terms of attendance in our Parish School and Religious Education programs.

4.  Registration alone does not constitute being a member of our community.  Parishioners of Holy Angels are expected to support their community.  Support of the Parish means being a STEWARD of the parish and includes involvement, sharing and commitment.  Hence, the use of our Parish envelopes, as the visible means of support of the Parish and an active participation in our worship and the various ministries of the Parish.

     The bedrock upon which or Parish is built consists of the truths of the Catholic religion.  These include:

The Ten Commandments

1.  I am the Lord, your God.  You shall not have strange gods before me.

2.  You shall not take the name of the Lord, you God, in vain.

3.  Remember to keep holy the Lord's Day.

4.  Honor your father and you mother.

5.  You shall not kill.

6.  You shall not commit adultery.

7.  You shall not steal.

8.  You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

9.  You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.

10. You shall not covet your neighbors goods.

        The Commandments of God may be stated more simply in terms of the Greatest Commandment:  “You shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

SACRAMENTS

It is difficult to live up to the Commandments of God.  To help us to do so, Jesus has given us the Church and the Sacraments, signs instituted by Christ to give grace.  Hence the Seven Sacraments:

The Seven Sacraments

1.  Baptism

2. Penance or Reconciliation

3.  Confirmation

4.  Holy Eucharist

5.  Matrimony

6.  Holy Orders

7.  The Anointing of the Sick

 

 

GRACE

     There are two kinds of grace.  Sanctifying grace makes us holy and pleasing to God.  Actual grace helps us to do good and avoid evil.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Precepts of the Church

1.  To attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation

2. To fast and abstain from meat on days appointed.

3.  To confess at least once a year.

4.  To receive Holy Communion during Easter time.

5.  To contribute to the support of the Church.

6.  To observe the laws of the Church concerning Marriage.

7.  To join in the missionary spirit and apostolate of the Church.

     As we have the Ten Commandments of God, we also have the Commandments of the Church, which help us fulfill the commandments of God in a definite and particular way.

 

     Nota bene:  The family is the basic unit of the Church.  It is of great importance that the law of marriage according to the mind of the Church must be observed; and that the Sacrament of Matrimony is available to those who are committed to live as husband and wife.  The Church discourages the celebration of civil marriage without the benefit of the Sacrament of Matrimony.  In fact, the Church has issued this statement that those who have undergone the civil ceremony of marriage and are living together, impose upon themselves this prohibition to receive the Sacraments of Holy Communion and Penance or Reconciliation until this situation is resolved a valid celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony.

     Parents who are preparing their children for the Sacrament of Baptism must see to it that they themselves are fulfilling these duties of the Church, because they are the basic and primary teachers of Faith to their children.
