To our new parishioners:
If you are new to our parish or Columbia University Catholic Campus Community or have lived in the neighborhood and attend Mass but just never registered, we invite you to become an official member of the Church of Notre Dame. There are registration forms in the back of the church or in the sacristy. It is important to be a registered member of a parish since membership is required in the Catholic Church throughout the United States for various sacramental occasions such as: Marriage, Baptism of a child, Funeral.
Official membership in the parish you attend is also required for those who will serve as a godparent or sponsor for confirmation even if the sacrament will take place in a different parish.
