The seven sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist (Holy Communion), Reconciliation (Penance, Confession), Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing of the Sick are outwards signs instituted by Jesus Christ to give grace in order to sanctify the soul.
Baptism is the sacrament by which we are forgiven of all past sins, united to Christ for the first time, and enter the Church.
Parents seeking to baptize their children are required to attend one Baptism Preparation class prior to the baptismal date. Classes are typically held the first Tuesday of each month in the Parish Center at 7:00pm (or through zoom). Parents are encouraged to attend the class before the birth of their child. Godparents residing in the Park City area are requested to attend the class as well. The class is for St. Mary’s parishioners only. Members of other parishes must attend whatever preparation is required in their home parish.
Please Pre-register with Deacon Tom Tosti at (435) 783-5831 or [email protected].
Parents seeking to baptize their children at St. Mary’s must attend the Baptism Preparation classes before a date can be scheduled. Once the class has been attended, parents need to call the office (435) 649-9676 to schedule the baptism

EUCHARIST, RECONCILIATION & CONFIRMATION
The Holy Eucharist is the sacrificial offering of Jesus' body, blood, soul, and divinity, although it appears to be bread and wine. The Mass is the celebration of the Eucharist. At Mass, Jesus' Paschal Mystery is made present in a sacrificial meal.
Reconciliation is the way God restores our relationship with Him and forgives us of our sins committed after Baptism. It is also called Confession or Penance.
Confirmation means "strengthening." It is the sacrament through which Christ strengthens us in union with His Mystical Body, the Church, perfecting the graces of Baptism.
Parents seeking to have their child receive 1st Communion, Reconciliation, or Confirmation need to enroll their child in Religious Education classes. Click here for more info.
The sacrament of Matrimony is an indissoluble bond between a man and a woman for the good of each other and the procreation and education of children. Through the sacrament, spousal love images Christ's relationship with His Church.
All baptized Catholics residing in Summit and Wasatch Counties in Utah may marry at St. Mary's in accordance with Church law. St. Mary's provides prenuptial marriage preparation and the ceremony for parishioners, as well as for the children of registered parishioners and for non-registered Catholics who live full-time within the boundaries of the parish.
Catholics living outside the boundaries of the parish require permission and preparation in their local parish.
Holy Orders is a sacrament of apostolic ministry by which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church through the laying on of hands. It is the sacrament that makes a man a bishop, priest, or deacon.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that spiritually strengthens any sick or dying person who receives it. It gives him or her the grace to persevere in faith and hope during temptations that sometimes come up at the end of life. If the person is unable to confess his sins, Anointing of the Sick still forgives the sins.
