So how do I go about receiving the sacraments?

That depends.... scroll down for more information. Should you not find your answer online or have a special circumstance,

please call the office for further information 901-794-8970


Baptism, the first and fundamental sacrament and the gate to the other sacraments, is the purifying and sanctifying sacrament of rebirth. It is the means by which its recipients are incorporated into the church in a sacramental bond of unity.

Usually this sacrament is administered to newborns and children. If this is your case, you will need to attend a course, along with your "Godparents" of choice. Please choose your child's Godparents wisely as they too will commit to helping your children along their spiritual and life journey. Godparents must be Catholic in good standing.

Please call the office 901-794-8970 to setup an appointment and schedule the date of Baptism.

Should a teenager or adult need the sacrament of Baptism,

they will need to register for R.C.I.A.

First Communion (Eucharist)

As children reach the age of reason, generally around age seven, the Church extends to them an invitation to celebrate the sacrament of Eucharist. The initiation into the Christian community that took place at baptism is further extended by inviting children to enter fully into the heart of Christian faith through participation in the Eucharist.

In order to receive their First Communion, your child will need to be enrolled in our PRE program for 2 years. Traditionally in Latin America, "Padrinos" are present during the Mass in which the children receive their First Communion, but it is not mandatory.

Please contact Leticia Gaonzalez, DRE, for more information.

In the case of teenagers and adults, they will

need to register for R.C.I.A.

By a signing with the gift of the Spirit, confirmation enriches the baptized with the Holy Spirit, binding them more perfectly to the Church, and strengthening them in their witness to Christ by word and deed and in their work to bring to its fullness the Body of Christ. Confirmation is conferred through anointing with chrism and the laying on of hands.

Teenagers typically begin the preparation for Confirmation in the 8th/9th grade and it is a 2 Year Preparation period. In order to be confirmed, your child must be Baptized and received their First Communion. Only one sponsor is required and that person must be in Good Standing with the Catholic Church. 

Please contact Leticia Gonzalez, DRE, for more information.

If you are an adult seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation or a teenager who hasn't been baptized or have received First Communion, you will need to register for R.C.I.A.

The Church has a rich tradition in its teaching on sacramental marriage and covenantal union. The Old Testament authors write of God making a covenant with the chosen people and promising them that they will never be forsaken. The New Testament authors write of Jesus as the new covenant and compare the relationship of Jesus with the Church to the relationship of a husband and wife. The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership for the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring.

The first step is scheduling a time to meet with either Fr. Favazza or Fr. Enrique for Marriage Prep information. Typically you must be registered for 6 months at Resurrecion in order to schedule your Nuptial Mass and there is a Stipend of X Cost. Your contract with the church stipulates what the stipend covers but usually does not cover Musicans, decorations, photography. etc.. Recommendations available upon request.

Contact the Church Office to setup your appointment.


Anointing of the Sick

Through the sacrament of anointing, Christ strengthens the faithful who are afflicted by illness, providing them with the strongest means of support. Jesus showed great concern for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and commanded his followers to do the same. The celebration of this sacrament is an opportunity for the deepening of the faith of the community who are able to witness the faith and devotion of those being anointed.

If a sick person who received this anointing recovers his health, he can in the case of another grave illness receive this sacrament again.  If during the same illness the person's condition becomes more serious, the sacrament may be repeated.  It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. If circumstances suggest it, the Anointing of the Sick should be received following the Sacrament of Penance.

Finally, for those who are about to leave this life, the Sacrament completes the holy anointings that mark the whole Christian life and fortifies the individual for their final journey. In such cases, the priest will also often offer the Eucharist in the form of Holy Viaticum (food for the journey).     

Please contact the Office should you need a Priest


Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the sacrament by which bishops, priests and deacons are ordained and receive the power and grace to perform their sacred duties. The sacred rite by which orders are conferred is called ordination. The apostles were ordained by Jesus at the Last Supper so that others could share in his priesthood.

We strongly invite all young men to consider at least discerning the priesthood. The Diocese of Memphis is constantly recruiting men for the vocation. If you're interested in just having a conversation of what the process is like, please contact the office and setup an appointment with Fr. Robbie, Fr. Enrique or Deacon Justin Mitchell. The diocese is also recruiting married for the Diaconate, please consider this vocation as well.
