The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are Baptism, Penance, Eucharist, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy Orders and Anointing Of The Sick. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence. That’s what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God’s grace.
The parish Pastoral Council is committed to ensuring that necessary information is available about the Sacraments and other various aspects of the parish. In addition to this website the parish produces a weekly parish bulletin, available at Weekend Masses and also by email on request to Fr Brennan. A Quarterly Newsletter is delivered to each home in the Parish. To add your name to the Newsletter delivery schedule please email firstname.lastname@example.org or join our newsletter online.
Baptisms may be booked, planned and organised with Fr. Brennan on an individual basis.
