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.

Despite the pandemic and the restrictions being imposed, our Life of Faith continues.  We have been able to keep our churches open for Mass  and so we now need to consider preparing our children for 1st Holy Communion and our teenagers for Confirmation.

I hope to start these programs in the New Year.  However, in the face of current, and maybe changing, pandemic restrictions we need to properly plan exactly how and where we will deliver our programs. I therefore need to know numbers and as our plans will be specific I will NOT be able to accept last minute or late applications.

Application forms will be available for collection at either church OR you can download them as Microsoft Word documents below.

The deadline for applications is Monday 30th November—which gives you 7 weekends to submit the applications!  There is therefore no excuse for late applications. Fr Michael
