For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God. For more information about receiving this Sacrament, please call the Parish Office at 770-941-2807 during parish office hours. We have a Baptism packet which is available for $5.00. In this packet, there is the registration form, the information needed and information about choosing Godparents. You can purchase this packet on Sunday's at our information desk or by coming to the parish office during office hours.
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance and Confession) has three elements: conversion, confession, and celebration. In it we find God’s Unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated on Tuesday from 6:00PM-6:45PM, Thursday from 11:00AM-11:45AM and 6:00PM-6:45PM and on the first Saturday of the month from 8:30AM - 9:30AM .You can also schedule an appointment with a Priest by calling the Parish Office during office hours at 770-941-2807.
Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God. For more information on receiving this Sacrament for the first time, please call our GIFT Faith Coordinator, Saul Onate at 678-217-8412 or [email protected]
Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. For more information on receiving this Sacrament, please call the parish office at 770-941-2807.
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God’s values. For more information about receiving this Sacrament at St. John Vianney, please call the parish office at 770-941-2807.
In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained, vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness. Learn More About Vocations Here.
