Baptism is the foundation Sacrament and the prerequisite for all other Sacraments. Baptism is a part of choosing what is best for your child. After Baptism it is asked that you demonstrate to your child your own commitment to the faith by bringing your child to Mass, and leading them by example through to their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. A lay catechist runs a short preparation course prior to Baptism. Please use the “email the parish office" button to get in touch or for more information.

This is usually celebrated by children in Year 3, or above. The children attend a series of classes to prepare for this Sacrament. Please use the “email the parish office" button to get in touch or for more information.
The Confirmation programme is offered to any candidate who is in year 7 or above, who has made their First Holy Communion.
The programme will involve approximately 10 x one hour long sessions, the dates of which, will be confirmed once we have received finalisation from Bishop Paul. During these sessions candidates will work with our vibrant team of catechists as they explore the elements of the Sacrament of Confirmation.
