Sacramental Preparation

A Sacrament is an efficacious sign of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is given to us. Full and active participation in the sacramental life of the Church requires a period of preparation of both mind and heart to be receptive to the grace of new life in Christ.

Please contact the Parish Office for further information.


These take place on Saturdays or Sundays by arrangement with the Parish Priest. Application forms are available from the sacristy and on completion parents are asked to attend a preparation session in the Parish Centre. Dates of these are given in the newsletter.


Weekly sessions are arranged for adults considering be coming Catholics. These take place on Tuesday evenings at 8pm, lasting an hour. The course starts in the autumn, but those considering becoming Catholics can contact the Parish Priest at any time.


At least six months notice is required so that the necessary preparation and paper work can be completed.
