Saint Juan Diego Catholic Church is here to serve you and your loved ones in your spiritual needs, and in the performance of sacraments that enrich and give breadth to your communion.

Nevertheless, we strongly suggest that if you already are registered at another parish, you have your sacraments performed at that church.
If your Parish is unable or unwilling  to perform a holy sacrament, or you simply prefer the services of St Juan Diego Catholic Church, we will be glad to assist you through the process.

Please note that all sacraments performed by ordained, and active clergy of the Free Catholic Church are valid Catholic Sacraments.


The Sacraments of the New Testament were instituted by Christ the Lord and entrusted to the Church. As action of Christ and the Church, they are signs and means which express and strenghten the faith, render worship to God, and effect the santification of humanity and thus contribute in the greatest way to establish, strenghten and manifest ecclesiastical communion"

Considered one of the three sacraments of initiation into Christian life and community, Baptism should be administered among the body of witnesses to receive the child and commit to raising the candidate intoChristian life.
Through Baptism we are born into a new life with God. We die to Sin and are reborn into the grace of being from that very moment, Children of God, Brethren of Christ, and Heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.
When you baptize your child, you take a commitment to instruct him/her obedience and appreciation to the Church and its traditions.

Holy Communion

By Holy Communion we are united most closely to Christ, through the Eucharist. As our Lord says "He who eats from my flesh and drinks from my blood abide in me and I into him." John 6:56


In the sacrament of Penance, the repentant Christian confesses his/her sins to a priest, who standing as an ambassador to God, pronounces the absolution by means which they are forgiven. The Lord says, "Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." John 20:23

This Sacrament can only be administered by appointment or before Mass on Sundays. Only in case of pending death you should contact our clergy for reconciliation.


Confirmation is the strengthening of the new life in Baptism and it increases and deepens baptismal grace. As such, it is a process of learning and self-awareness that fosters open and clear communication with God through one's heart.

Weddings and Vow Renewals

This sacrament indicates that two willing people unite their lives before God and witnesses, and testified of their unconditional love for each other. Matrimony represents the welding of love bonds, with the blessing of God, and the beginning of a life of cooperative building.
Holy Unions is a term to indicate the religious ceremony between two people of the same gender, as recognized by our community, and the presence of love.

Anointing of the Sick and Viaticum

This is offered to someone who is ill and in need of a prayer for physical and spiritual healing. Often, this is somenone who is recovering from surgery or an illness.

The viaticum is the spiritual preparation for the journey into Heaven when someone is in grave danger or pending death. It is the opportunity to take part for the last time of the body of Christ and commend oneself to God.
