Active Parishioner Status

We receive many requests from parishioners to qualify for weddings here, or to be godparents or sponsors for the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, and to rightfully enjoy the number of services offered at the Basilica of San Albino.

Part of that request is to be able to verify that a person is an “active member” of the Basilica. Because of the nature of our congregation, having so many visitors, it is difficult to know everyone.

An “active member” of the parish is one who:

  • Is properly registered and on the parish census

  • Faithfully attends Mass on Sundays and Holy Days

  • Participates in parish activities when possible

  • Uses the parish envelope system

While assessments of an inquirer’s status will be made individually, the above are the main factors that will be considered in making that determination.


Please join us for Eucharistic Adoration every Friday
from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Adoration occurs in the chapel which is just to the right of the Altar when facing the Altar. There is an outside entrance door behind the church building.

All are welcome.
