Baptisms are scheduled the last Sunday of each month following the 11:30 AM Mass. Parents wishing to baptize a child at Redemptorist must attend a baptism class. Baptism classes are offered the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Rectory. Both parents must attend the class, and we strongly prefer that at least one godparent attend as well. One godparent must be a practicing Catholic.

To register for the baptism class, please call the parish office at 816.561.3771. Our office hours are 9:00 AM–4:00 PM Monday through Saturday.

Non-parishioners wishing to baptize a child at Redemptorist must provide their pastor’s written permission to do so before registering for the class. Please call the parish office if you have any questions.


First holy communions are coordinated by the Redemptorist Parish and its affiliated schools. Contact the parish office for more information.


Confessions are heard daily after the 7:00 AM and 11:00 AM Masses, after the 5:30 PM Mass on Tuesdays, and on Saturdays from 3:00–4:00 PM and 7:30–8:00 PM.


Our Lady of Perpetual Help Redemptorist Church is known as one of the most beautiful churches in the Diocese, and as such is a popular site for weddings. The church seats up to 800 people. The calendar fills far in advance, so please inquire as early as possible to get your preferred date and time.

If you are planning to do your marriage preparation work here at Redemptorist, you will need to allow at least six to nine months for your preparation. If you intend to do your marriage preparation elsewhere, you should check with your preparation priest in advance for the required preparation time period.

Wedding ceremony times are on Saturdays only, at 11:00 AM, 1:30 PM, and 6:30 PM. Wedding rehearsals are scheduled the Friday evening before your wedding. There are no exceptions to these times.

The fee for a wedding at Redemptorist Church is $1,500 for an 11:00 AM wedding and $1,995 for either 1:30 PM or 6:30 PM. A payment of $995 is due at booking with the remainder due two months prior to the wedding.

In order to schedule your wedding at Redemptorist Church, one of the parties must be Catholic and both must be free to marry in the Catholic Church.

We schedule weddings only when the required paperwork, information, and deposit have been delivered to the church. We do not reserve or hold dates beforehand. Please contact the parish office for further details.

Anointing of the Sick

Please contact the parish office at 816.561.3771 for assitance in arranging an anointing of the sick.


Generally your funeral director of choice will contact the church to make funeral arrangements. Generally there are three kinds of in-church funerals: with the deceased’s body present; with the deceased’s cremains present; or a memorial Mass without the deceased’s body or cremains. Your funeral director will discuss with you the fees involved for the use of the Church, the priest’s stipend, musicians, and altar servers, and handle those arrangements for you. Because we are a parish church with multiple daily Masses and multiple weekend weddings, funeral Mass times are limited. After discussing arrangements with your funeral director of choice, please have them call the parish office at 816.561.3771 to confirm the day and time. After arrangements are settled, a priest will meet with you to learn more about the deceased and plan the particulars of the funeral liturgy with you.
