Sacraments

Baptism

 “After his resurrection, Jesus told his disciples: ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you.’” (Matthew 28:19-20)

“Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 1213).

Parent(s) must be registered members of the parish or must receive permission from their home parish for a baptism to be performed at St. Isidore’s.

If you would like to have your child baptized at St. Isidore's, please contact Rachel Francis at 785-539-7496 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. An instruction class is required for the baptism of the first child. 

Marriage

St. Paul said: “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the Church” (Eph 5:25). The sacrament of Matrimony celebrates and witnesses the covenant of love between two people, and it signifies the union of Christ and the Church.

Engaged couples must begin the marriage preparation process at least six months prior to the intended date of the wedding. During this time, the couple is able to complete the necessary paperwork and fulfill all marriage preparation requirements.

If you would like to have your wedding at St. Isidore’s, complete your marriage preparation through St. Isidore's, or attend our weekend Marriage Preparation retreat, please contact Rachel Francis at 785-539-7496 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

We look forward to working with you as prepare for this sacrament!

Confirmation

 

“Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1316).

Because St. Isidore's is a Catholic Student Center, we do not offer sacramental preparation classes to prepare junior high or high school students to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. If you are a college student or adult member of St. Isidore's looking to receive these Sacraments, please see the RCIA section of the website.

 

Reconciliation

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we experience God’s mercy and forgiveness. Our sins are forgiven and we are reconciled with God and with the Church.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available:

Summer             Wednesday at 8:30PM & Friday 10AM
School Year    Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 8:00PM & Fridays at 10:00AM
Year Round        By appointment (call the main office at 785-539-7496 to set up a time)

Because St. Isidore's is a Catholic Student Center, we do not offer sacramental preparation classes to prepare children to receive their First Reconciliation and Communion. If you are a college student or member of St. Isidore's looking to receive these Sacraments, please see the RCIA section of the website.

Eucharist

The Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” Under the appearance of bread and wine, we receive the Real Presence of Christ: Body and Blood, soul and divinity. Jesus said: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; … he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and … abides in me, and I in him” (John 6:51, 54, 56).

Holy Orders

“Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate [bishops], presbyterate [priests], and diaconate [deacons]” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1536).

Do you think you might have a calling to the priesthood or religious life? Please visit our Vocations page to learn more.

Anointing of the Sick

“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven” (James 5:14-15).

Through the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, Christ offers comfort and strength to persons who are suffering from a serious illness. In this Sacrament of Healing, recipients are able to pray for healing of the body in addition to the spiritual healing of the soul that comes with the forgiveness of sins.

If you or a loved one is in need of this Sacrament, please contact the office at 785-539-7496.
