Sacramental Preparation

Please note, there will be no sacramental preparation for baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, RCIA & marriage until further notice.  Candidates who are already registered for any of these sacramental preparation sessions, will be contacted when it is safe to resume sessions in the church.

In the meantime, please follow any of the many online links to scripture, prayer and online Mass.  Please see Daily Meditations and Reflections in.’Newsletter & Links’ too.

If you find any links and would like to share them on this website please send them to: manorhouse@rcdow.org.uk

 

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.

Enrolment forms for all Sacramental Preparation are available from the rack in the church porch

BAPTISM
Please attend Mass at St Thomas More, complete the form for Baptism and give it to Deacon Kassa.  He will contact you about preparation classes and arrange a date of Baptism.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
Your child needs to be in Year 3 or above to enrol on sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
Please complete the form in the church porch and hand it to a member of the parish team.

CONFIRMATION

Future course dates:

ALL MARRIAGE PREP COURSES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

In view of the current advice from the Government and instruction from the Diocese of Westminster, the marriage preparation courses in the format that we used to have them, have been cancelled.  We are working on recreating a similar course online.  If you have already reserved a place on a course, we will be in contact to all those couples when we are ready to offer alternative suggestions to physically attending our marriage preparation courses. 
 
If in the meantime you are going ahead with your wedding and need to do a course, please email ingridbowie@rcdow.org.uk and she will be able to suggest alternatives.  These are unforeseen unpredictable times and I hope you understand our predicament, which is nowhere near your situation of uncertainty surrounding your wedding, family and friends abroad.  
 
Keep well and here’s hoping for happier times.

There will be one day Saturday marriage preparation courses scheduled once per month, every month in 2020.
