The parish currently offers a weekly class for inquirers into the Catholic Faith. The class meets Tuesdays at 6 pm in the parish library (check the calendar to be sure, as the class periodically takes breaks). Any non-Catholic is welcome simply to show up at the class, though the priests always welcome meeting anyone interested in joining the Church established by Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church.

Any Confirmation sponsor who is not a member of the parish will need a letter of good standing from their pastor. Confirmation sponsors must satisfy the requirements for a Confirmation sponsor stipulated by the Catholic Church, which are the same as those for baptism (per canon 893).
Parishioners should contact one of the priests. In a case of a true sacramental emergency, such as danger of death due to illness, one should call the emergency line at the parish. To do this, call (770) 948-6888 and select option 7. It is wise also to heed the instruction of the Roman Ritual, which requires the following items to be arranged in the room of the sick person when the priest arrives:
* In the chamber of the sick person there should be a table covered with a white cloth;
* placed there should be a container with cotton or similar material made into six separate pellets to bc used in wiping the parts anointed;
* a small piece of bread for cleansing the priests fingers,
* and a bowl of water for washing his hands;
* a wax candle to be ignited later to give light to the priest at he performs the anointings.
In fine, it shall be his concern that everything is as clean and orderly as possible for the administration of this sacrament.
