Sacramental Life of the Parish
The Sacraments are the Church’s way of celebrating God’s presence among his people. They are signs of growth and change experienced at significant moments in a person’s life. [Because of the pandemic. Sacraments will be celebrated according to the guidelines issued by the Diocese.]
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS [RCIA] -
BAPTISM OF INFANTS: is celebrated on Saturdays or Sundays, by appointment following a course of preparation. For details about preparation courses please see Fr. Anthony. At least one of the Godparents should be a practising Catholic.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION usually takes place in May or June each year following a course of preparation [starting in October] for both the children [usually every other week during term times] and parents [six meetings].
