Sacraments

THE SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION

Through the sacraments, we become sons and daughters of God, part of the body of Christ, part of the community we call church

BAPTISM

The preparation of parents and godparents for infant Baptism happens is offered through a single Saturday morning class that is taught once a quarter. The sacrament itself is conferred a week later. Adult baptism is offered through our RCIA programme.

THE SACRAMENTS OF HEALING

Through these sacraments we obtain God’s healing grace. Our broken relationships with God and others are healed. We are also strengthened to face times of illness.

RECONCILIATION

The sacrament of reconciliation is available after each weekday mass, and upon request. The parish also holds a dedicated penance service in Lent and Advent.

Anointing of the sick is available on request. It is not a sacrament of the dying and can be given at any time, preferably before admittance to hospital.

THE SACRAMENTS OF VOCATION

Through these sacraments God calls us to a particular way of life and strengthens us with grace that we may live with integrity our calling as husbands and wives, priests and religious.

MARRIAGE

Engaged couples must notify the parish no less than six months before they intend to marry. Please consult with one of our priests before making any arrangements with the reception venue to avoid unnecessary stress.
