Sacraments

The Sacraments are a central aspect of parish life, and the most important celebrations in the life of a Christian.

For Mass times, and times of Confessions, please see the separate heading on our home page.

If you wish to arrange a Baptism or enquire about a Wedding, or if you or someone you know are in need of the Sacrament of the Sick, please contact us by telephone or email. One of the priests will respond to you.

We regularly prepare children and young people to receive the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Details of these courses are announced annually, usually during the Autumn term. Please note – given the importance of these Sacraments in the life of the Church, we would expect the young people to be attending Mass regularly prior to enrolling on these classes, and their families to be registered parishioners.

We also run courses of instruction for adults wishing to enter the Catholic Church – if you are interested, please email us or speak to one of the priests.
