Sacraments in our Parish
Recently we welcomed in Baptism: Niamh Gaffey, Max Jurkacek and Robert O’Donoghue.
We ask Parishioners to pray for all children and their families.
All parents wishing to Register their child for Baptism are required to attend a Parish Baptism Preparation meeting.
For more details on how to register your child/children for Baptism, please contact the Parish Office.
First Communion and Confirmation
Thanks to the parents who have volunteered to be part of the Sacramental Preparation Committee for our Confirmation and First Communion Ceremonies next year.
At our first meeting it was agreed that Confirmation Enrollment Ceremonies would take place at Vigil Masses on Saturday, 18th November and First Communion Enrolment Ceremonies would take place at Vigil Mases on Saturday, 2nd December.
Enrolment Forms will be collected at these Ceremonies. (If you haven’t received an Enrolment Form, please call to the Parish Office or chat to Fr. Brendan after any Mass).
Due to high numbers of candidates, tickets will need to be issued for the Ceremonies. How many tickets can be allocated to each child will depend on how many enrol for the Sacraments.
It was also decided that children and their families will be invited to join their fellow parishioners at Masses during Advent. Each child will be given an ‘Advent Passport’ which will be stamped at every Mass they attend. Children who complete the Passport will receive a prize.
