Community >Faith Development

In a fundamental way, we hope that by their participating in the life and liturgy of our parish, families will be supported in their own faith development.

  • Our Pre-Baptismal Programme is frequently the first point of contact between parish and new families.
    It is widely appreciated by parents and families of newborn children.
    Members of the Baptismal Team visit each home before the baptism takes place.
    Early booking is advisable as the maximum number of children per baptism is four.
    Baptisms take place on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month at 5.00 p.m. and on the 4th Sunday of each month at 1.00 p.m.
  • The preparation for First Penance, First Eucharist and Confirmation has greatly developed in recent times.
    It involves, more than ever before, the Family and the whole Community.
  • Our Liturgy Group helps to make our parish liturgies more vibrant and meaningful.
  • Marriage preparation, and pre & post-marriage support, is all part of our commitment to family life in the parish.
