Celebrating the sacraments is at the core of our parish life. Our big moments in life are marked in a solemn way from womb to tomb.
On this page we will provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments and there is a link to more information on each sacrament.
To make arrangements for a baptism in our parish call into the Parish Office.
A member of the Baptismal Team will arrange a visit with your family to help prepare for the ceremony.
The names of those welcomed recently into our Christian Community through baptism are listed on the Welcome page of our website.

In this diocese, church weddings can take place on any day other than Sundays and major feast days. See below the dates that are not available for church weddings in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The ongoing life of the church depends on vocations to the priesthood. Our diocese has a director of vocations and we’d be delighted to make an introduction for any interested candidates. Talk to any of the priests to get more information. The Diocesan website may also have useful information about Vocations in our diocese.
Anointing of the sick
The priests of the parish attend to our sick in hospitals and at home. Many like to receive the sacrament of the sick and are strengthened and affirmed. If you would like to receive the sacrament of the sick or know someone who would please contact any of the priests or the parish office.
