Baptism

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 Monica Aguirre at 678-981-5229 during parish office hours.

You can also obtain more information from our Baptism packets, including the registration form which must be completed and brought to the parish office:

Reconciliation

 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

Thursdays from
5:30PM – 6:15PM

and on

Saturdays from
4:00PM – 4:45PM
.

You can also schedule an appointment with a Priest by calling the Parish Office during office hours at 770-941-2807.

First Communion

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 the parish office at 770-941-2807.

Confirmation

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.

Holy Marriage

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.

Holy Orders

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.

Anointing of the Sick

The Catholic Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical, but also for mental and spiritual sickness.
If you are facing a procedure (operation or medical testing) and wish to be anointed, please call the parish office at 770-941-2807.

In cases of emergency, please call our Sacramental Emergency number at 404-895-8479.
