Our Ministries

CITI Ministries is about serving the people of God. We are responding to the need for non-judgmental ministry and a welcoming environment for people  facing challenges within the church. Our priests will listen and provide guidance as they make every effort to assist you with your sacramental needs.

You may call on a CITI priest to perform a baptism or first communion, witness a wedding or second marriage, anoint the sick, preside at a funeral and celebrate reconciliation. Some priests will preside at home masses in cases of parish closings or for those who wish to establish small faith communities.
