Message from Fr Kendrick

Evey time I celebrate Mass, I bring with me all those entrusted to my care and offer the Sacrifice of the Mass on your behalf. I am also continuing to offer the Sacrifice for your requested intentions, which I will publish in the bulletin. The Church has always believed that when we are hindered from being physically present at Mass, we can participate in the Eucharist spiritually by desire, and that there is still great fruit in this. Please continue to unite yourselves with our Lord and His self-offering to the Father. May we all deepen our hunger for the Eucharist, so that when this is all over, we may once again, physically flock to the heavenly banquet.

Sacraments

Sacraments of Initiation

Baptism

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

One instruction meeting is necessary. Contact Parish Office at least one month in advance

Eucharist

Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in transubstantiation, the real presence of Jesus in the bread and wine which becomes the Body and Blood of our Lord. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Confirmation and 1st Holy Communion are offered to children aged 7-8 who have gone through the necessary education and workbooks.

Sacraments of Vocation

Marriage

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.

Contact Parish Priest or Deacon at least 6 months before intended date of marriage.

Holy Orders

In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the Sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.

Sacraments of Healing

Reconciliation

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance, or Confession) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others. Advent and Lent offer Penitential Service when we gather as a parish community to receive the sacrament of forgiveness 

Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered anytime upon request.  Please contact Pastor.

Anointing of the Sick

The Catholic Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness.
