Preparation for the sacraments

Sacraments are celebrations of the faith of the Christian community and ideally should be prepared for with the assistance of the community and celebrated in the presence of the community.

To this end, the Parish has various groups –

Baptism

For baptism, there is the team that oversees the Baptismal Preparation Courses for  parents seeking baptism for their children. View video on the meaning of Baptism.

Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament is available for any who are in danger of death by reason of illness or age or who are due to undergo surgery.

Reconciliation, Confirmation  and Eucharist

For Reconciliation, Confirmation  and Eucharist, there is the team that assists parents in the  gradual initiation of their children into full communion with the Catholic Church through the Christian Initiation of Children (CIC).
