BAPTISMS

Baptisms are celebrated on Sundays at 11.45am (except the 3rd Sunday of each month).

Before having a baby baptised in our parish, parents are required to attend a Welcome Mass, which is at 10.00am on the 3rd Sunday of each month. It is also essential that parents attend a Baptism Preparation Session.

If you wish to book a baptism, please contact the Sacramental Coordinator on Monday or Thursday between 9am and 5pm.

RCIA (RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS)

Thinking of becoming Catholic?

Have you been worshiping with us, and now is the time to officially take the step to become Catholic?

Have you been away from the church...and have now returned, and want to know more?

Have you been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist)?

Is it a little overwhelming?
Then the RCIA might provide the answers.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priest the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed the Church exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting their suffering with the Passion and death of Christ.

This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark, but is recommended to the faithful and promulgated by James the apostle.The Church believes and confesses that among the seven sacraments there is one especially intended to strengthen those who are being tried by illness, the Anointing of the Sick.

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given to those who are seriously ill by anointing them on the forehead and hands with duly blessed oil – pressed from olives or from other plants – saying, only once: “Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.”
