Baptism is the first sacrament celebrated in the process of becoming a full member in the Catholic Church. The waters of baptism symbolize life and death, washing and cleansing, and the mystery of new life out of death.  At the baptism of a child (or any person) we celebrate and reflect on God's unconditional love and welcome them into our faith.

First Communion 

First Holy Communion completes the Sacraments of Initiation. Holy Eucharist refers to Christ’s body and blood present in the consecrated host on the altar during the mass, and Catholics believe that the consecrated bread and wine are actually the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. For Catholics, the presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist is not just symbolic, it is real.


Through this sacrament Catholics pass in the process of their religious upbringing. By the sacrament of Confirmation (the baptized) are more perfectly bound to the Catholic Church and are enriched with a special gift of the Holy Spirit.

Anointing of the Sick 

This sacrament can be received by anyone in any time with a serious illness, those who are infirm, in advanced years, or anyone prior to surgery. This sacrament is not only for when a person is in danger of death. If you are interested in receiving this Sacrament, please contact Fr Peter our Pastor.

Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

Catholics who approach this sacrament obtain pardon from God’s Mercy for the offense committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins. (CCC)
