Sacrament of Reconciliation

This is the normal way we can be forgiven serious sin after Baptism. Saturday: 10.30-11am, 6-6.30pm and on request.

Confirmation

The catechetical programme of preparation begins in September, culminating with the celebration of the sacrament in May-June. Students in Years 9 or 10 should apply in writing to the Parish Priest. Confirmation classes take place on weekday evenings in the Lent Term.

Religious Education for Adults

Adults who would welcome the opportunity to explore the Catholic faith are warmly invited to speak to the Parish Priest. Fr Terry will be only too pleased to support adults who, for whatever reason, have not made their First Holy Communion or who have not been confirmed.

A minimum notice of SIX MONTHS should be given in written applications to the Parish Priest.

RCIA

Non-Catholics or non-Christians, who would like to explore the possibility of reception into the Catholic Church, are asked to contact the Parish Priest. Mutually convenient sessions, starting in September and culminating at the Easter Vigil, are held in the presbytery.
