Baptism is but the first step leading to full membership in the Church and the beginning of a life of faith. This faith is a 'seed' needing to be nurtured by the parents who are in the words of the Rite 'the first and best teachers in the ways of faith'. The pre-Baptism programme seeks to offer parents both the support of the community and an opportunity of reassessing their own faith and responsibilities to educate their children.
Please notify me if a relative or friend is hospitalised or ill. Mass is celebrated every Saturday in the home of a sick person. All sick people are given the opportunity of weekly Holy Communion through our very active Eucharistic Ministry.
If you would like to make your Church contribution by means of a banker's order, please contact me for the necessary form.
