 SACRAMENTS 

The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.

The first sacrament, for all Christians, is Baptism whereby we become a member of the Church and receive the Holy Spirit to help us live as a true disciple of Christ. The other six sacraments (Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders and Anointing of the Sick) are further moments of grace that deepen our Baptismal commitment.

BAPTISM

Parents who want to have their child baptised need to speak directly with a priest, according to where they live. The priest will explain them the procedure and help them with the preparation. 

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Read from our vision how children and young people can be prepared to receive the First Holy Communion.

CONFIRMATION

Read from our vision how children and young people can be prepared to receive the Confirmations.

CONFESSION

MARRIAGE PREPARATION

It is a diocesan requirement that all couples wishing to receive this sacrament be properly prepared. For marriage preparation and anyone wishing to arrange a wedding at one of our churches, click below

ANOINTING

OF THE SICK

Parishioners who are ill or due for an operation are encouraged to celebrate this Sacrament. This can be arranged in the hospital (through the nursing staff) or at home (contact the parish office).
