Parish Registration Information
Why register in our parish? Through your participation as a “Parish Steward”, you continue to help a community of faith grow. You gain services when you need them, such as Baptism, Visitation of the Sick, Sponsorship Certificates and a place for a Funeral.
How do I become a parishioner of Our Lady of Grace Parish?
Call us at 203-377-0928 or stop by the Parish Office: Monday – Friday, between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm or on Saturday morning between 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and just say, “I want to register” and we will take it from there.
Why is it important to register with the parish?
Many times parishioners request letters of recommendation for educational or employment purposes, as well as Sponsor Certificates to be sponsors at Baptism or Confirmation, and other special needs. It is difficult for the Pastor to fulfill these requests when you are not registered in our Parish Census. The Parish Census also helps the pastor and staff to plan pastoral activities. Please be sure that you are registered adequately in our census files. Call the Parish Office at 377-0928. You will receive updated information regarding the parish by “email” or calling post (an auto-call system)
At my previous parish, we were able to make donations electronically. Do you offer this service?
We currently have over 100 families who use our “Parish EFT Program.” They all agree that it makes donating to the church a lot easier and more convenient. Call the Parish Office to request an EFT application and we will send one right out to you.
Will parish clergy be notified when I enter the hospital?
When you are admitted to the hospital, remember to tell the Admittance Office at the hospital that you belong to Our Lady of Grace Parish. If the sick person being admitted cannot articulate this information, a family member should do so. With the recent confidentiality laws in place this is the only means we have to know who is Catholic and with what parish the sick person is affiliated. This is important for the parish clergy making visits to our parishioners at the hospital.
What is the process to have my child baptized?
Pre-Baptism Classes are held 4 times per year on the second Sunday of the following months: January, April, July and October. Baptisms will take place on the 1st or 3rd Sunday of each month. Please contact the Parish Office at 203-377-0928 for additional information.
I am being relocated out of the area. What do I need to do?
Please notify the Parish Office so that we may alter your census information and our mailing list.
Does the parish rent out the gym or loan out tables or chairs for a private party?
For security reasons and insurance purposes, our Parish will not rent space in our facilities and will not loan any equipment for use outside of our facilities.
