Sacramental Life

Children are initiated into the Catholic Community through several steps or sacraments over a period of 12 to 13 years. From the time of Baptism, children are influenced by the lived faith and life of their parents, and their practice of personal and family prayer, together with their participation in the sacramental, liturgical and social aspect of the parish community.

The parish supports this with a Family Based Sacrament Programme. Children are presented to the Community at a Sunday Mass, when they register for the Sacrament. They are given their work materials for home use, then come together with other children for a Workshop Day at the parish.
