Celebrating the Sacraments at the HRIC Collaborative

Baptism
We celebrate this sacrament on the second Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m. at the IC Church. Please call the Collaborative offices (978-462-2724 or 978-346-8604) for more information and future dates.

Confession/Reconciliation
We offer Confessions Saturdays from 3:00–3:30 p.m. at IC Church. No appointment needed. Confessions are also available at other times and places during the week by appointment only. For more information or to schedule a time for Confession, contact our Collaborative offices at (978) 346-8604 or (978) 462-2724.

Sacrament of the Sick
The Anointing of the Sick is one of the seven Sacraments of our Church and is administered by a priest for healing and inner wholeness. Those who are seriously ill, elderly, or are entering the hospital can request to be anointed. Due to varied schedules and availability, it may not always be possible for a priest to come on short notice to offer the Sacrament, therefore it is strongly recommended that you request the Anointing of the Sick before going in for a hospital stay, upon entering a nursing home, or at the beginning of hospice care. Please call Collaborative offices at 978-462-2724 or 978-346-8604 to learn more.

Marriage
Archdiocesan guidelines request that couples planning to marry in the Church contact the church at least six months prior to the wedding date. Please call the Collaborative offices (978-462-2724 or 978-346-8604) for more information.
